The World Heritage List: Filling the gaps: An action plan for the future

This ICOMOS analysis on the World Heritage List and Tentative Lists should be seen as a contribution to the further development of the Global Strategy for a credible, representative and balanced World Heritage List. This analysis is a response to the invitation by the World Heritage Committee at its 24th Session in Cairns (2000) to: "proceed with an analysis of sites inscribed on the World Heritage List and the Tentative List on a regional, chronological, geographical and thematic basis". The proposed scope of the analysis was to "provide States Parties with a clear overview of the present situation, and likely trends in the short- to medium- term with a view to identifying under-represented categories.
