Federal Foreign Office of Germany
With its offices in Berlin and Bonn and a network of around 230 missions abroad, the Federal Foreign Office maintains Germany’s relations with other countries as well as with international and supra-national organisations. Because Germany and German society are enmeshed in ever-growing international networks, the Federal Foreign Office promotes intensive interaction and exchange with the world in the fields of business, culture, science and technology, the environment, development issues and many more areas.
An International Assistance request for the development of a National Action Plan for Risk Management at World Heritage Properties in Chile was put on the MarketPlace in 2016. In June 2017, the German Foundation for World Heritage has contributed to the funding of this project for US$27,272.
