World Monuments Fund announces 2022 Watch list

NEW YORK – From a coral-built cemetery in the Maldives to royal Kushite pyramids in Sudan, public water fountains in Nepal, prehistoric cave paintings in Brazil, and India’s earliest Chinatown, the World Monuments Fund’s 2022 Watch list, announced Tuesday, highlights 25 diverse sites with deep local significance in need of timely attention.

The sites span six continents and reflect the perils posed by climate change, natural and man-made crises, unsustainable patterns of tourism, and the need for representation of a wide range of people and stories. Learn about each of the sites, from an archipelago in Yemen to Africatown, Alabama.

Once a site is selected for the Watch, the World Monuments Fund seeks to collaborate with local partners in designing a conservation program tailored to the site’s—and their—needs. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), first supported the World Monuments Fund in 1999 and was honored at the organization’s annual Hadrian Gala in 2016.
