New publication: Exploring Cultural Heritage of the Arab Region: Potential offered for a more balanced World Heritage List
The Arab Regional Centre for World Heritage (ARC-WH) and the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) are pleased to announce the launch of the study “Exploring Cultural Heritage of the Arab Region: Potential offered for a more balanced World Heritage List”.
Extended 44th session of the World Heritage Committee, Fuzhou (China)/Online meeting, 16-31 July 2021
As an advisory body of the World Heritage Committee, ICOMOS provides advice and makes recommendations on all matters related to cultural and mixed heritage, including the inscription and monitoring of the state of conservation of properties. The World Heritage Committee deliberates and then makes a decision based on these recommendations.
From 18 to 23 November 2019, the ICOMOS World Heritage Panel met at ICOMOS International Secretariat, Charenton-le-Pont, in order to discuss 17 cultural and mixed properties nominated for inscription on the World Heritage List in 2020.
The 2021 cycle was particularly challenging in view of the exceptional circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Late technical evaluation missions carried out on an exceptional basis in December 2020 and January 2021 led to the organization of one ICOMOS World Heritage Panel session in November 2020 and two extraordinary sessions in January 2021.
