Suncheon is seeking the designation as a UNESCO Biosphere reserve first. The biosphere designation could come as soon as 2018 or 2019 and it would include several ecological areas in and around Suncheon, including a linked corridor to (2) Ramsar wetlands.

Korean cities and regions are very keen on "branding" in regards to tourism. Jeju is often touted as special because of its "triple crown" designation as world heritage, biosphere reserve, and global geopark. North & South Jeolla province are on an ambitious mission to achieve a flurry of diverse designations.

The Sourthwest Coast Tidal Flat nomination dossier is fairly advanced at this point and its certainly a priority nomination. In the next couple years, Korea's Southwest coast region could have additional biosphere reserves, ramsar sites, world heritage sites (cultural & natural), and Global Geoparks!

They take these things seriously in Korea indeed: they are looking for seven lost UNECSCO certificates that verify the inscription of Korean cultural assets on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

Interesting detail from an article today.

"There are additional World Heritage sites including Baekje Historical Remains Extension List (2022), Namwon and Jangsu Kaya Ruins (provisional list listing / 2020), and Byeonggolje (inclusion in the temporary list / 2019). It will become a treasure trove of Korea's representative World Heritage Sites."
