Capacity building in Cuba on protection of the underwater heritage

 

11 May 2016/ UNESCO Havana/Portal of Culture of Latin America and the Caribbean

The city of Santiago de Cuba will host the Foundation Course on Protection and Management of Underwater Cultural Heritage, using Admiral Pascual Cervera’s sunken fleet as a case study, from 16 to 27 May.

The capacity building is organized in the framework of the project “Protection and management of underwater and coastal cultural heritage for job creation in Santiago de Cuba”, financed by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) and coordinated by the UNESCO Regional Office for Culture in Latin America and the Caribbean, jointly with the National Cultural Heritage Council of Cuba, the Centre for Underwater Cultural and Natural Heritage Management and Conservation of Santiago de Cuba (founded after the project had started), and the Cuban National Commission for UNESCO, among other national stakeholders, and with the support of the AECID Technical Cooperation Office in Cuba
