Within the framework of the Japanese Funds-in-Trust project "Capacity Building to Support the Conservation of World Heritage Sites and Enhance Sustainable Development of Local Communities in Small Island Developing States (SIDS)" the World Heritage Centre will organize a national workshop on World Heritage for government officials and community representatives, NGOs and civil society of Nauru, which will be held in Nauru from 19 to 23 January 2015.

Nauru is a small island country in the Pacific with 21 km2 of land area, and one of only 4 remaining UNESCO Member States that have not ratified the World Heritage Convention.

The workshop aims at providing multi-stakeholder consultation on the safeguarding of the World Heritage in Nauru, and building capacity of the Nauru authorities and various stakeholders in topics including the process and procedures of the 1972 World Heritage Convention, World Heritage as part of the sustainable development agenda, and strategies for sustainable tourism at World Heritage sites. Participants in the workshop will also discuss identification and protection of the country’s outstanding cultural and natural heritage, its presentation to the global community, and a strategic and action plan for World Heritage in the country.
