This news was first published in Amrapali Magazine in January 2015.


The Caribbean Action Plan for UNESCO World Heritage got confirmed. The joint meeting was organized amidst the World Heritage Centre, UNESCO Offices in Havana and Kingston, in collaboration with the UNESCO Office in Port au Prince, Haiti, with the financial support of the Netherlands Funds-in-Trust at the World Heritage Centre.



The meeting discussed various facets of the Caribbean Action Plan and its Capacity Building Programme 2014 – 2014 (CCBP) and emphasizing upon matters relating to the importance of the Caribbean in regard to World Heritage as well as accountability for its stakeholders as well for carrying ahead the concept.



The topics discussed were:

Climate Change Impacts and Risk Management

Community Participation

Sustainable Tourism

The core idea is to approve a Sub-regional Action Plan for the Caribbean based on Regional Action Plan for Latin America and the Caribbean. This was initially approved by States Parties in Brasilia (May 2014) and then by the World Heritage Committee in Doha (June 2014).



The participants of the meeting involved Focal Points from States Parties, Universities, Advisory Bodies (ICOMOS – ICCROM – IUCN), UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the UNESCO offices of Kingston, Havana and Port – au – Prince. The countries represented were Anguilla, Grenada, Belize, Bahamas, Jamaica, St. Lucia, St. Martin, The British Virgin Islands, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, Haiti, and Cuba.
