Public Sector: Public partners of the World Heritage Centre group stakeholders that have an institutional link with one or more States. Governmental agencies are official institutions between a State party to the World Heritage Convention and the World Heritage Centre. National agencies and public universities are state organs or government-sponsored organs, that are part of the implementation of the State policy. Finally, international agencies are intergovernmental organizations gathering States to take measures at a regional or international level.
