Sub-regional workshop on the Mechanisms of the World Heritage Convention and the Nomination Process
The training workshop on the World Heritage Convention and the nomination process for World Heritage sites took place from 21 to 23 March 2023 at the premises of the Arab Regional Centre for World Heritage (ARC-WH) in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain.
The importance of this workshop lies in the fact that it comes at a time when heritage sites face many challenges and problems, whether man-made or natural. Therefore, there is great importance in developing knowledge of the World Heritage Convention and its main concepts, as the 1972 Convention is one of the most important tools of international cooperation to protect cultural and natural heritage worldwide and works to preserve and protect the heritage of humanity.
The workshop included the participation of a number of experts, engineers and specialists in the field of heritage from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Kingdom of Bahrain, the State of Kuwait, the State of Qatar and the Sultanate of Oman, and participants from the UNESCO Chair for World Heritage Management and Sustainable Tourism in the Arab region at the German University in Oman.
