BirdLife Africa Partners’ Joint Statement on the Development Threats to and Management of World Heritage Sites
BirdLife Africa Partners’ Joint Statement on the Development Threats to and Management of World Heritage Sites on the 50th Anniversary of the Adoption of the World Heritage Convention.
BirdLife International Partners in 26 African countries (the BirdLife Africa Partnership), would like to convey our congratulations on today’s 50th anniversary of the adoption of the World Heritage Convention. While the Convention has undoubtedly contributed to the protection of iconic and irreplaceable sites around Africa and around the world, we are deeply concerned about the large-scale development projects and mismanagement that threaten a growing number of World Heritage Sites in Africa.
