Call for application for the Strengthening Capacities of World Heritage Professionals in the Arab Region for Cultural and Mixed sites
ARC-WH and ICOMOS International, in collaboration with ICCROM and IUCN, are organizing a Capacity Building programme for World Heritage Professionals in the Arab Region. This programme aims at building a strong network of experts from the Arab region that will assist the Arab States, the Advisory Bodies and World Heritage stakeholders in the effective implementation of the World Heritage Convention.
The Strengthening Capacities of World Heritage Professionals in the Arab Region for Cultural and Mixed sites pilot workshop (in English) will be held from 9 – 13 December 2018 at the Arab Regional Centre for World Heritage (ARC-WH) located in Bahrain.
The workshop will approach the implementation of the World Heritage Convention for different types of heritage that exist in the Arab region, and will also take regional specificities into account. Participants will have the opportunity to explore concepts and tools used by the Convention, and will provide insight into how the Advisory Bodies work on State of Conservation reports and evaluate nominations.
Please note that a workshop in French is under consideration and will be implemented in 2019.
