Training-the-Trainers Workshop for Cultural Heritage Specialist Guides

The Training-the-Trainers Workshop for Cultural Heritage Specialist Guides at UNESCO World Heritage Sites was held from 6 – 11 May 2006 at the Zhiwaling Hotel in Paro, Bhutan.

The workshop was organized by the Royal Government of Bhutan in conjunction with the UNESCO-ICCROM Asian Academy for Heritage Management (AAHM) under the framework of the ADB-supported Human Resource Development component of the SASEC Tourism Development Plan (TDP).

The workshop brought together 21 participants from the tourism and heritage sectors in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal and Sri Lanka, with the majority representing National Tourism Organizations (NTOs). Participants were divided into cross-country groups for the purposes of interactive group work and sub-regional exchange. The training team was composed of member institutions of the Asian Academy, with the Institute for Tourism Studies (Macao SAR, China) and the University of Hong Kong (China) serving as the lead training focal point.
