The ruins of the city of Great Zimbabwe, the monumental capital of the Kingdom of Zimbabwe, are one of the most emblematic places of the world’s architectural heritage. The name of the site derives from a Shona word meaning “stone house”. A national monument and UNESCO World Heritage Site, Great Zimbabwe encompasses extensive areas of archaeological remains. The Great Zimbabwe Development Project, implemented by the National Museums and Monuments of Zimbabwe, UNESCO and UNOPS, with funding from AFD, aims to promote sustainable and inclusive tourism development and cultural heritage of Zimbabwe, by improving the conservation of the World Heritage Site and strengthening national capacities to manage the site while promoting interlinkages with the local economy.
