The 10th edition of the Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa will take place in 2022  in Bahir Dar in hybrid format under the theme, “Managing Security Threats: Building Resilience for the Africa We Want”. In line with this, the secretariat holds the multi-stakeholders forum on a selected theme that resonates with the main forum to reach more constituencies across the continent and popularize the outcomes of the forum among wider constituencies. Hence, the Tana Forum Secretariat in partnership with Oxfam will organize a regional multi stakeholders hybrid forum on the theme “The Impact of Peace and Security on Culture and Heritage Protection in Africa” to be held on 21 April 2022. This concept note is developed to guide this forum.

Culture combines communal conduct and customs as well as language, knowledge, beliefs, traditions, arts, customs, capacities and habits. Heritage is the legacy of physical artifacts that are inherited from past generations, maintained in the present and bestowed for the benefit of future generations. Heritage includes tangible culture (such as buildings, monuments, landscapes, and natural heritage (including culturally significant landscapes, and biodiversity). The deliberate act of keeping cultural heritage from the present for the future is known as Conservation (British English). Cultural heritage is often unique and irreplaceable, which places the responsibility of preservation on the current generation. The critical, non-renewable, component of human civilization, expressed through natural and cultural heritage, should be preserved and protected by current and future generations.
