2011 Annual Report
Each year WMF supports work around the world that transforms historic places in urgent need of care into vibrant centers of activity, places to learn from and to enjoy. Sometimes our engagement is short-term and catalytic, as it is with many sites in our global advocacy program, the World Monuments Watch® . The goal of the Watch is to call attention to the needs of the place, and boost the efforts of local advocates who are trying to save it. In other cases, WMF undertakes a sustained effort that may last for many years.
