Today, the institutional and operational landscape of territorial development is fragmented. This is what makes it rich but also weak. This is why, in terms of territorial development based on World Heritage, CoPaM proposes to make all the wills converge in the service of the same objectives.

A heritage expertise of the diagnosis of the listed property or to be included in the deployment of the successful experiment
CoPaM is at the disposal of all project leaders and their partners to support them in the design and implementation of projects concerning World Heritage properties (cultural, natural, mixed, serial, inscribed or to be inscribed).

CoPaM carries out all the necessary actions to guarantee the relevance and effectiveness of projects in the long term.

CoPaM can provide support for the overall approach or, depending on the degree of maturity of the project, for one or more stages by providing targeted skills in response to identified needs.

CoPaM's ambition is not to replace the project leader but to support him/her in the process by strengthening his/her capacities. From the diagnosis of the property registered or to be registered to the deployment of the successful experience, CoPaM provides the assurance of moving forward under good conditions.

Getting cooperation
Collective work, whether local or international, is at the heart of our missions. CoPaM acts as an integrator, federating the forces involved, establishing action processes for the conservation of World Heritage and its enhancement for the benefit of local populations.

Each heritage property has its own specificities and is conceived as an integral part of a large mosaic of World Heritage.

Joining forces to develop a property does not mean putting it in competition with other properties, as all have outstanding universal value.

Breaking with some old and bad habits in the field of international cooperation, the aim of CoPaM is not to "do in place of" but to accelerate local projects and to transmit expertise to people or organizations initiating their projects. CoPaM is a facilitator, an accelerator, it is not an "operator"!

Far from diminishing its added value, its positioning makes it a real lever for the long-term development of territories via the capacity building of actors. The union of parties at the service of common objectives is written in our genome!
Obtaining funding
For each of the projects in which CoPaM is involved, it provides an additional guarantee to local, national and international donors.

With its ability to raise funds directly or via its network of partners, and to manage both small and large budgets, it enables stakeholders to position themselves in relation to potential public and private donors. CoPaM has the capacity to respond to calls for proposals, either as a lead partner or as a partner as the case may be.

All project leaders respecting the CoPaM charter are invited to associate CoPaM according to a formula which will always be co-decided!

CoPaM strives to combine public and private, local, national and international funding in a proportion adapted to the nature and objectives of the projects. It seeks to combine different modes of financing with the objective of an economic, socio-cultural and ecological impact for the territory.
Mobilizing skills
Thanks to its network of World Heritage experts, which includes experts from UNESCO and experts in project management in an international context, CoPaM mobilizes the skills adapted to each project, from their design to their deployment and evaluation.

The skills of the CoPaM team are the cornerstone of the initiative. Coming from public authorities and civil society, the team has a detailed knowledge of the system of actors, project engineering and existing funding mechanisms, which it puts at the service of each of the projects.
Ensuring institutional and technical support
For each project supported by CoPaM, the whole CoPaM network will be mobilized in order to find the best possible institutional and technical support. Indeed, we were born from the meeting of international organisations, national authorities, local authorities, qualified personalities and civil society. Support is essential for the proper conduct of projects and the achievement of the expected results in a given territory.
