ICOMCOS Mission to National History Park, Haiti
Principal Engineer Dr.Tom Morrison was part of the ICOMOS Mission on behalf of UNESCO to the National History Park of Haiti. With the assistance of UNESCO and the World Bank, the Haitian Government hoped this early 1800s UNESCO World Heritage Site, a complex of stone masonry ruins and military fortifications, could be developed into a revenue-generating tourist destination. Heritage Standing Inc. provided an efficient and rigorous on-site assessment, collaborating with the tourism sector to demonstrate the value of implementing conservation best practices. After this initial stage, Heritage Standing Inc. continued as a member of the UNESCO review and advisory team.
