Workshop on Developing World Heritage Nominations in the Federated States of Micronesia

Nan Madol

The Ponhpei State Government will organise a workshop on developing World Heritage nominations in Ponhpei in October 2012 in cooperation with the Office of National Archives, Culture and Historic Preservation of FSM Government.
This Workshop aims to provide FSM experts with training opportunities on how to prepare nominations by utilizing existing documents on Nan Madol, one of the largest and spectacular archaeological sites in the Pacific, which is often called Venice in the Pacific. "Ceremonial Centres of the Early Micronesian States: Nan Madol and Lelu" was included in FSM's Tentative List to be nominated for World Heritage List in the near future.

The Workshop will be facilitated by ICOMOS experts. It will be followed up by a study visit of FSM delegates to Palau in the same month in order to share experiences in World Heritage process and learn the impact of World Heritage inscription on sustainable development of local communities.

This project has received funding under the UNESCO/Japanese Funds-in-Trust.
