AWHFEach year the African World Heritage Fund provides conservation grants to African State parties in order to support and implement activities which focus on improving the State of Conservation of World Heritage properties. All counties or regions in Africa are eligible, but project activities are restricted to World Heritage Sites as declared by UNESCO. That is why proposals must definitely address challenges affecting the state of conservation of the heritage property in question.

The African World Heritage Fund (AWHF) is an inter-governmental organisation that was launched in 2006. Its mission is to support the effective conservation and protection of natural and cultural heritage of outstanding universal value in Africa. The African Members States of UNESCO and the African Union, with the aim to develop a strategy to deal with the challenges that many African countries meet in implementing the 1972 World Heritage Convention, initiated the AWHF.

Eligibility:

Request for proposals and assistance is open to all African member states that have ratified the 1972 UNESCO World Heritage Convention. Note that only applications endorsed by the National Director in charge of cultural/natural heritage, or equivalent, will be accepted.

Deadline: August 31 , 2016.
