UNITAR Hiroshima Office launches the second five-year cycle of its Series on the Management and Conservation of World Heritage Sites. UNITAR's "values-based management" methodologies will go one step further with the new theme of World Heritage Impact Assessment. Conservation for Peace will remain as an underlying principle throughout the second cycle. Two World Heritage sites in Hiroshima - Hiroshima Peace Memorial (Genbaku Dome) and the Itsukushima Shinto Shrine will provide additional case studies and learning opportunities.
The first training workshop in the second cycle will take place from 19 to 24 April 2009.
