As the official advisory body on nature under the World Heritage Convention, IUCN makes recommendations on sites aspiring to achieve World Heritage status and on necessary action to conserve listed sites facing threats. The World Heritage Committee takes final decisions.
IUCN recommendations for 2019 will be released in two dispatches six and four weeks before the World Heritage Committee meeting (estimated for 20 May and 3 June). All recommendations and official documents are issued by UNESCO's World Heritage Centre.
Quick access to the documents containing IUCN's advice will be provided when they become available, on the following pages:
