The Heritage Monitoring Project (HMP) is a civil society initiative to monitor and report on heritage law reform and enforcement, monitoring and evaluation. The HMP provides an independent voice for tracking progress of the realisation of heritage and cultural rights in South Africa. Our mission is to strengthen transparency, accountability and responsible custodianship across the heritage sector. We do so in collaboration with heritage bodies working across a wide range of disciplines. The HMP is responsible for the annual 'Top Ten Endangered Heritage Sites in South Africa' campaign and maintains South Africa's official endangered heritage list.
The organisation was founded by Jacques Stoltz and James Ball in 2015.
