There are nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Ethiopia as of 2019. The first sites were listed in 1978. Only one natural site is included in the list and the other eight are all cultural sites. Ethiopia’s numerous cultural heritage sites make sense given the fact that Ethiopia contains most ancient anatomical evidence of humans on Earth.

Aksum (1980);Fasil Ghebbi, Gondar Region (1979);Hara Jugol, the Fortified Historic Town (2006);Konso Cultural Landscape (2011);
Lower Valley of the Awash (1980);Lower Valley of the Omo (1980)
Rock Hewn Churches, Lalibela (1978) & Simien National Park (1978)

In the Ethiopian context, Meskel Demera, the commemoration feast of the finding of the true holy cross of Christ, on the 27th September and Fichee-Chambalaalla, the new year festival of the Sidama people, in August, have both been in scripted by UNESCO and the ICH, in 2013 and 2015, respectively. The Gada System, an indigenous democratic socio-political system of the Oromo people, has been nominated to be in scripted by UNESCO and the ICH for 2016. According to reports, the inscription has been accepted by the Committee and recognized as a world intangible cultural heritage
