Rights in World Heritage Conservation – an IUCN workshop

Rights in World Heritage Conservation – an IUCN workshop

The intricacies of rights-based work within World Heritage Conservation will be explored at the IUCN’s World Conservation Congress this week.

A joint workshop, by the University of Lucerne in Switzerland, ICOMOS, the IUCN, ICCROM and Forest Peoples Programme, will discuss challenges in achieving greater progress in rights-based approaches around the 1,052 official World Heritage sites, and those vying for the status.

The event, Scaling-up Partnerships on Rights-based and Equitable World Heritage Conservation, will focus on recent research and promote dialogue on the best way to amplify work on rights in World Heritage Conservation.

The event runs from 5-7pm on Sunday, September 4, in room 314-UNDP Kauhale.

The congress is being held in Hawai’i until September 10.
