UNESCO World Heritage Fund supports two new projects in Tanzania

Following requests from the United Republic of Tanzania, the World Heritage Fund has granted a total of USD 59,836 in International Financial Assistance for two new projects to address conservation and management needs at two World Heritage sites: the Ruins of Kilwa Kisiwani and Ruins of Songo Mnara and Kondoa Rock-Art Sites.

A project signing ceremony convened by the Tanzania National Commission for UNESCO was organized in October 2020 in Dar es Salaam for the signature of contracts between UNESCO and the site management authorities– Tanzania Wildlife Management Authority (TAWA) and Tanzania Forest Services (TFS) Agency—for the implementation of the projects over the next 12 months.
