A Pacific Heritage Workshop will be held in Koror, Palau from 30 August to 1 September 2017 in cooperation with Palau. The Workshop will bring together government officials in charge of heritage safeguarding in member states and territories in the Pacific, regional intergovernmental organisations and regional NGOs, Category II Centres in Asia and observers.
The objectives of this Workshop are to provide an opportunity to enhance the capacity of stakeholders through sharing information on progress in the Pacific World Heritage Action Plan 2016 - 2020 and to gain a better understanding of the Hague Convention and the Underwater Cultural Heritage Convention, promoting an integrated approach to the safeguarding of land-based and underwater heritage in the Pacific.

A Steering Committee of Pacific Heritage Hub (PHH) will meet one day before the Workshop to discuss PHH strategy and action plan. The outcome of the PHH Steering Committee Meeting will be presented on at the Workshop.
