Asia-Pacific Focal Point

for World Heritage Managers

Funding assistance and other sources of assistance

The Asia-Pacific Focal Point supports complementary activities funded by UNESCO, the World Bank and other bodies in the region and will seek to maximise funding opportunities available from those bodies for projects in the region. The APFP will also play a role in identifying and mobilising additional resources for the implementation of the Convention. It will not have a funding assistance or grants element but may directly sponsor activities that promote the Convention. Its emphasis will be on sharing information, expertise and networking.

The UNESCO  web site has information about the World Heritage Fund. International assistance from the Fund can support requests falling under five categories:

Taveuni, Fiji

Taveuni Islands, Fiji
