The Global Theme Study examines the positions of volcanoes and volcanic features in relation to the World Heritage List. It was commissioned by IUCN, following a request of the World Heritage Committee which observed that volcanic features are now well represented on the List and any future nominations of volcanic World Heritage Properties should be limited to only those that fill the most significant gapxs in the present coverage.
