What is international assistance?
International Assistance under the World Heritage Convention is granted to the State Parties to the World Heritage Convention, in order to help them protect the World Cultural or Natural Heritage located on their territories and inscribed on the World Heritage List, the List of World Heritage in Danger or on their Tentative List.
How to Submit an International Assistance Request?
International Assistance requests must be transmitted by a State Party National Commission for UNESCO or Permanent Delegation to UNESCO, or an appropriate governmental Department or Ministry. Individuals who do not represent one of these bodies are therefore not entitled to submit requests for International Assistance.
The deadline for submitting International Assistance requests for funding in 2013 is 31 October 2012.
