The National Heritage Fund (NHF) is mandated to identify, protect, manage and promote our various National tangible and intangible heritage. Among them is the famous Aapravasi Ghat, known as a national, regional and international memorial site that was declared a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) World Heritage Site in 2006.

Additionally, the Le Morne Cultural Landscape was inscripted on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2008.
