The C2C at WII is the first centre globally to be established dealing with World Natural Heritage. The Centre's mission is to strengthen implementation of the World Heritage Convention in Asia and the Pacific Region by building the capacity of all those professionals and bodies involved with world natural heritage site inscription, protection, conservation and management in Asia and the Pacific region, through training, research, dissemination of information and network building.
The overall objective is to focus on natural heritage conservation issues with the aim to:
- Contribute to the strengthening of capacities in the management of World Natural Heritage in the region;
- Contribute to achieving a more balanced representation of properties from Asia and the Pacific on the World Heritage List;
- Raise awareness among the general public and the youth in particular of the importance of World Natural Heritage and the need to protect it; and
- Foster international cooperation on World Natural Heritage initiatives.
- Facilitate World Heritage educational and awareness building activities for various stakeholders.
- Undertake research and/or monitoring of important world heritage issues including an assessment of key biodiversity indicators for World Heritage sites;
- Serve as a central hub to collect, collate and disseminate information including best practices for the better conservation of World Natural Heritage properties
About World Heritage:
Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations.
Our cultural and natural heritages are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration. They are our touchstones, our points of reference, our identity.
What makes the concept of World Heritage exceptional is its universal application. World Heritage sites belong to all the peoples of the world, irrespective of the territory on which they are located.
Natural Heritage, by which countries recognize that the sites located on their national territory, and which have been inscribed on the World Heritage List, without prejudice to national sovereignty or ownership, constitute a world heritage ‘for whose protection it is the duty of the international community as a whole to cooperate’. Without the support of other countries, some of the world’s outstanding cultural and natural sites would deteriorate or, worse, disappear, often through lack of funding to preserve them. The Convention is thus an agreement, ratified almost universally, that aims to secure the necessary financial and intellectual resources to protect World Heritage sites.
