The new list of buildings on WMF’s flagship advocacy programme was announced at a press conference on 6th October. Since the Watch programme’s inception in 1995, more than 630 sites in 125 countries and territories have been included on the eight lists. Nearly half the sites featured in 2008, representing 79 countries, have received WMF support totalling $50 million. These WMF funds have leveraged an additional $150 million in assistance from other sources.
