In the framework of a Memorandum of Understanding signed between ICOMOS International and the Arab Regional Center for World Heritage (ARC-WH), a workshop aimed to train experts from the Arab Region on World Heritage matters has been organized by ARC-WH in collaboration with ICOMOS and in partnership with IUCN and ICCROM in Manama from 9 to 13 December 2018.

The Pilot workshop welcomed 12 professionals from 10 different countries of the Arab States and was developed in three phases. First, a theoretical phase presented and discussed the basic concepts of World Heritage, the Evaluation process and the State of Conservation. In this phase, a special module on World Heritage terminology in Arabic was included. Secondly, a practical phase included a visit to the World Heritage Site of Qal’at al-Bahrain, in which the participants made a mock Technical Evaluation Mission and Reactive Monitoring Mission. Finally, participants presented case studies from their respective countries.

The workshop was well received by the participants and thus, a new edition for French-speakers heritage professionals is expected in December 2019
