World Heritage Fund

© Okavango Delta © Joyce Bestelink

The Fund for the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage of Outstanding Universal Value, called "the World Heritage Fund", was established under Art. 15 of the World Heritage Convention. Its resources consist primarily of assessed contributions by the States Parties of the Convention and may be used only for such purposes as the World Heritage Committee shall define.

 Consultation Survey


Voluntary annual fee by the properties inscribed
on the World Heritage List

At its 40th session (Istanbul/UNESCO, 2016), the World Heritage Committee decided “to initiate a consultation process on annual fee for World Heritage listed properties on a voluntary basis by requesting the Secretariat to send out a survey to States Parties, in order to verify from their local administrations in charge of management of inscribed sites of the possibility of paying an annual fee to the World Heritage Fund, depending on their financial autonomy and capacity to pay and report back to the Committee” (Decision 40 COM 15).
