CCBP Module 6: Natural Heritage Management

In 2004, the World Heritage Committee endorsed the Caribbean Capacity Building Programme (CCBP) to help implement UNESCO’s World Heritage Convention in the Caribbean. It is a long-term training programme composed of various modules including a general training course on the “Application of the World Heritage Convention” and thematic ones related to different aspects of managing. “Natural Heritage Management” is one of these specific modules and has been prepared by UNESCO with contribution of consultant Enrique H. Hernández.


“Natural Heritage Management” deals with the natural heritage from the perspective of other conventions, international multilateral treaties and major NGOs. It aims to develop synergies by providing specific training to those involved in management and decision-making processes, and help them identify, protect and make sustainable use of this heritage. Another aspect of Module 6 is the raising of awareness about natural areas in the Caribbean which could potentially be inscribed on the World Heritage List.


While each module lasts for 30 hours and is designed for, among others, professionals and stakeholders in the field of cultural heritage, politicians or universities, their manuals are freely available to interested readers online.
