The UNESCO Havana Office will host the first meeting of the Caribbean Capacity Building (CCBP) Programme Network from 5 to 7 March.
Twelve Caribbean States Parties and related academic institutions are currently adhering to this sub-regional programme that aims at building and strengthening capacities in heritage management, in fostering cooperation in the region and in contributing to understand the synergies between heritage conservation and new developments.
The CCBP is promoted by the UNESCO Havana Office and implemented in close collaboration with the World Heritage Centre and the Caribbean field offices in Kingston and Port of Prince.
This two-day meeting aims to establish procedures on how each State Party will implement the training modules at future conservation projects.
The Caribbean Capacity Building Programme is financed under the Netherlands Funds-in-Trust.
