World Heritage Sites and Regional Cooperation in Asia
April 16, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
UNITAR session open to the public.
While one of the key elements of the World Heritage Convention is the cooperation of the international community with regard to the protection of those sites that display Outstanding Universal Value, it is an area which has yet to fulfill its potential. Following the 2nd Cycle of Periodic Reporting for Asia and The Pacific, presented in 2012 in St Petersburg, it was concluded that regional cooperation was lacking, and needed to be improved.What opportunities exist for such cooperation in Asia, and what success stories exist as examples of best practice for states parties to emulate?The presenters for the Session will include Mr. Duncan Marshall, of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), and Mr. Masanori Nagaoka, from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The Session will examine examples of regional cooperation through World Heritage.The objectives of the workshop are to introduce to attendees the dynamic nature of World Heritage, and the influence that natural and cultural heritage, and the values inherent in them, can have upon national, regional and global identity.
