In the framework of the Third Cycle of Periodic Reporting, which started in the Africa region in September 2019, the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, in close collaboration with the African World Heritage Fund and UNESCO Field Offices, is organising a final regional online workshop for National Focal Points of the Africa region to present the outcomes of Periodic Reporting Exercise and to collect and develop recommendations to the preparation of the Regional Report and draft Action Plan (2022-2027) to be approved by World Heritage Committee during the 44th session of the World Heritage Committee.

This workshop was initially planned to take place in Zimbabwe. However, due to the current restrictive situation imposed by the COVID19 pandemic, convening an online workshop became the safest and the most feasible solution at this period. 

The workshop will be held over three days from 17 to 19 February 2021 via the Zoom meetings platform, from 11:00 to 16:30 (Paris, CET).
