What Partners Do

Each partnership involving the private sector is a unique endeavour. First and foremost a partnership is an arrangement whereby all partners pool their competencies and commitments in a jointly managed venture where benefits and losses are equally shared. It combines the skills and expertise of the private sector with the World Heritage Convention's legitimacy and the Centre's knowledge of conservation issues. How do partners participate?

Conservation Activities

Development and implementation of projects

The World Heritage Centre cannot do the work that needs to be done to preserve these important World Heritage sites without the commitment of individuals and institutions, big and small, throughout the world.

In addition to sites on the List of World Heritage in Danger, World Heritage Programmes particularly in need of attention are: earthen architecture, forests, modern heritage, small island developing states, marine programme, sustainable tourism, World Heritage cities and education.

Mobilization of Resources

Sharing of know-how, expertise and technique

Expertise acquired is one of the main resources derived from partners. Common partnership activities include providing training, equipment and staff.
