Unesco launches fundraising platform for World Heritage projects
POSTED 11 Jul 2017 . BY Tom Anstey
Unesco’s World Heritage Centre (WHC) has launched a new platform aiming to help donors find heritage projects in need of funding.

Called the Marketplace for World Heritage, the service allows would be donors to explore in depth what kind of funding heritage projects need and what impact their donation would have on these projects.

The Marketplace features a variety of projects, from funding development of an official Unesco World Heritage app to safeguarding the Temple of Bel in Palmyra, Syria. The platform will also show success stories with the aim of increasing visibility of heritage work being carried out worldwide. Proposals, which are currently listed between US$60,000 (€52,600, £46,500) and US$750,000 (€658,000, £581,000), will be submitted by WHC and Unesco’s regional offices.

On the website a detailed breakdown is given for each proposal in terms of context, objectives, budget, outcomes, beneficiaries, relevance and project timeline. If a donor chooses to fund a project, a community and visibility plan will developed in consultation with them.

“The World Heritage Centre takes this opportunity to call for strengthened support, not only from states parties, but also from the private sector, civil society, charitable organisations and all those interested in joining the community of World Heritage partners and contributing to the implementation of the World Heritage Convention,” said a Unesco statement.

“Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations. Its protection must be a collective effort, so that future generations enjoy the same irreplaceable places as we did. So joins us for to preserve the world’s heritage.”
