The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, announced that Jamaica has been elected to three important UNESCO committees, including the powerful World Heritage Committee which has the final say on whether a property is inscribed on the World Heritage List. Jamaica was also elected to four year terms on the Intergovernmental Committee for Physical Education and Sport and the International Coordinating Council of the Man and the Biosphere Programme.

Jamaica’s membership to the Committee will run until 2027. The country will be represented by Miss Debra Kay Palmer and Mrs Tracy Commock. Note that it is Jamaica’s second term on the World Heritage Committee, having served between 2013 and 2017.
