As a UNESCO World Heritage site, Jaipur city can get $100,000 for conservation

Jaipur has been the latest Indian city to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage list, a feat that was announced at the UNESCO World Heritage Committee in Baku. Junhi Han, Chief, Culture Sector and Programme Specialist for Culture, UNESCO New Delhi Cluster Office for Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal and Sri Lanka shared that in case of need, any World Heritage site can utilise World Heritage Funds for purpose of conservation, training to build capacity for management of WH site. She says, “The scale is not that big, can go up to $100,000 at several occasions. It shows solidarity of international community toward a World Heritage in need of such assistance. This happens only in case of need and only upon request, which will be examined also by UNESCO and Advisory committee to the convention.”
