IUCN Members come together every four years at the World Conservation Congress to take joint decisions on the global conservation agenda. In 2012, they adopted two Resolutions in an effort to redefine priorities for IUCN’s work on World Heritage.
These Resolutions remain the cornerstone of the IUCN World Heritage Programme:
- WCC-2012-Res-046: Strengthening the World Heritage Convention (available in English, French and Spanish)
- WCC-2012-Res-047: Implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in the context of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention (available in English, French and Spanish)
