St. Kitts and Nevis gears up to leverage UNESCO cultural heritage expertise and influence

The New Year has hardly been rung in when St. Kitts & Nevis officials met to kick-start plans for the Federation’s participation in UNESCO’s cultural heritage programme, focused on acquiring expertise from, and leveraging its influence at, this UN specialized agency in Paris.

On a quick visit to the Federation on 3 January last, Dr. David Doyle, the St. Kitts and Nevis Ambassador to UNESCO, based in Paris, met the two key UNESCO cultural heritage officials on island, Mr Percival Hanley, General Manager of the Brimstone Hill UNESCO heritage site, and SKN representative to the World Heritage Committee.
