Mount Mulanje (Malawi), nomination file is ready and received by Unesco:


Interesting - the Mt Mulanje site has been on the T List since 2000 and is clearly described as a NATURAL site titled "Mulanje Mountain Biosphere Reserve" on the UNESCO Web site

Yet, according to the above link, it has been submitted as a Cultural Landscape (CL) with this comment "it is hoped that Mt Mulanje's attraction as a destination will be greatly diversified with an emphasis on the rich cultural heritage of the area."

So, yet another African site goes down the CL route. Obviously it has been thought that the endemic flora/fauna and the geology/micro-climate of the mountain are not enough by themselves -also the mountain has (and still is) been heavily logged. But I have failed to find much which might justify a CL - though, no doubt, a few sacred groves and rock paintings might be found - also there is a historical "Mission" aspect which could be utilised

Hamburg - Speicherstadt, Kontorhaus District and Chilehaus - has now officially launched the process for inscription. The application has been presented to the City Council, in August there will be the final decision, and the nomination file will be submitted to Unesco by February 2014, for final decision in 2015.

I'm not sure about the second German nomination. According to recent news from a local newspaper Naumburg Cultural Landscape is more likely than Ore Mountains Mining Landscape.

The US San Antonio missions are in doubt for 2015, as the US is boycotting Unesco since the admission of Palestine:

I don't think this is exactly correct. When Palestine joined UNESCO, a 20 year old law automatically cut US dues to UNESCO. This was not planned or chosen by the Bush or Obama administrations. Unfortunately, to change this law would require Congress to take the initiative. The US Senate would change the outdated law, but the Republican led House would not. So nothing changes.

In fact, I have never seen the US more involved with UNESCO. There is a World Heritage Blog on the National Park website. World Heritage Week is being celebrated this week. When I visit WHS in the US these days, it is much more obvious of the sites designation. Lastly, the US is currently preparing 3 nominations, all nearing completion. (Poverty Point, Frank Lloyd Wright Buildings, and the San Antonio Missions)

I really hope politics don't come into play here. It would punish the US unfairly, when they are actually fully involved with UNESCO. Also how could UNESCO possibly punish the US after they paid a huge portion of their budget for decades!
