Within the framework of the Caribbean Capacity Building Programme for World Heritage (CCBP) and within the framework of the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), a workshop on risk reduction for Caribbean Heritage will take place from 23 to 27 June 2008 in Havana, Cuba.
The workshop is designed for the participation of heritage experts and leading agencies in their respective fields. It is focused on heritage matters but also aims to stretch UN interagency cooperation, disseminating their activities and enhancing results on the conservation of Caribbean Heritage sites. The workshop will train heritage site managers jointly with other experts in different fields, highlighting basic principles of cooperation for emergency procedures as they are established for risk reduction by the UN System (agencies, funds and programs). Experience of the Caribbean Risk Management Initiative /CRMI will serve as a synergy platform for cooperation methods.
