UNESCO 'LEAP' program

WHC which are participants in UNESCO's "LEAP" (Local Effort And Preservation) progarma in the Asia-Pacific region. "Designed as an innovative tool to contribute to poverty alleviation, these projects aim at empowering the indigenous populations and local communities living within or adjacent to heritage sites to play a leading role in the preservation and management of those sites. Through LEAP, communities are given the opportunity to share the economic benefits of enhanced conservation, while maintaining their own social and cultural traditions."
