IUCN at #42WHC

State of conservation reports 2018

Each year, IUCN makes recommendations to the World Heritage Committee on the state of conservation of 55 to 60 World Heritage sites listed for their natural values, including ‘mixed’ sites also listed for cultural values. The World Heritage Committee has the final say (see more on IUCN's monitoring work). The sites monitored in 2018 are listed below, with quick links to the reports containing IUCN's recommendations as well as to the latest Committee decisions.

Full documents issued by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre are also available for download, with items "7A" and "7B" released on 14 May and items "7A.ADD" and "7B.ADD" on 28 May. A third dispatch ("ADD.2") has also been exceptionally released in mid June.
