Culture is a basic need

In the words of the late Prince Claus of the Netherlands "Culture is a basic need". There can be no sustainable development without due attention to culture. Culture in this sense includes heritage, both tangible and intangible, the arts as well as contemporary worldview. Moreover, cultural heritage can be a strong force behind development in light of the ever growing tourism sector. These understandings have slowly taken root among African governments and development partners alike.

AfricanHeritage.Consulting can assist in putting these insights into practise through advice, research and implementation.
