In 2011 ICAHM began an Africa Initiative “The Potential Role of the World Heritage Convention, ICOMOS, and ICAHM in African Archaeological Site Preservation and Economic Development” geared towards identifying sites with potentials to be included in the World Heritage List thus increasing the number of World Heritage Sites in Sub-Saharan Africa to balance it with other sites in the world. Therefore, we are now happy to announce that the next ICAHM meeting, under the patronage of the African World Heritage Fund, will take us for the first time to the African continent, to Bagamoyo on the shores of Indian Ocean near Dar es Salaam.
The emphasis of this meeting will be on: trade routes to and from Sub-Saharan Africa to the rest of the world, the Africa Initiative, and conservation and sustainable use of paleoanthropological sites. Furthermore, we intend to organize sessions on: World Heritage Sites as Sources for Sustainable Development and Digital Technologies and Archaeological Heritage Management.
