Caribbean Training Course in the Preparation of Nomination Dossiers 2012-2013 (Follow-up)
The World Heritage Centre, the UNESCO Offices in Kingston and Havana in collaboration with the Antigua & Barbuda National Commission for UNESCO will organize the Caribbean Training Course in the Preparation of Nomination Dossiers, which will be held in St. Mary’s (Antigua & Barbuda) from 24 to 28 March 2013 within the framework of the Japanese Funds-in-Trust project "Capacity Building to Support the Conservation of World Heritage Sites and Enhance Sustainable Development of Local Communities in Small Island Developing States (SIDS)".
The objective of this 5-day training course is to strengthen professional capacities in the Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in preparing nomination dossiers and increase the number and quality of nominations of cultural and natural heritage sites, with a focus on sites of memory in the Caribbean.
This training course is the follow up to the June 2012 training held in Kingston Jamaica and is geared at assessing draft nomination dossiers that each country participant has been in the process of developing over the last eight months. After this training, participants are expected to finalize the nomination dossiers for submission to UNESCO World Heritage Centre. Some 17 Caribbean countries will take part in the training.
