Now we move onto: Sanganeb Marine National Park and Dungonab Bay - Mukkawar Island Marine National Park Sudan

How nice of IUCN to give a recommendation for deferral. It only took 32 years for this nomination to make it back to the world heritage committee after its first deferral! I bet inscription, unless we want to wait until 2047.

Finland recommends referral.

Qatar recommends referral.

Columbia, Turkey referral. Paraphrase (with some license) : The state party has been committed since 1983! OUV is there, give them a break.

Senegal hits the nail on the head, floats inscription because of OUV, but says it will support referral. Yet, how can countries with less resources finance more advanced management plans?

Kazakhstan, despite a strict Deferral by IUCN recommends ????possibly inscription????. They decided they just want Russia to take the floor and argue for their own nomination.

India recommends Referral. (Several countries back India's proposal)

Germany backs IUCN recommends Deferral. Turkey asks Russia and Mongolia to convince the committee they can complete the work necessary for a referral.

IUCN is ignored despite serious weaknesses in the nomination, including a failure to demonstrate OUV.

Human rights concerns may keep this referral recommendation a referral.

Yes, this property has WILD CATS! Thank you Vietnam and India.

Vietnam passionately supports Thailand in their ability to take care of its own citizens.

India, Finland, Jamaica support referral

Vietnam clarifies we are not in Geneva at the human rights convention. Portugal disagrees, human rights is fundamental to world heritage.

The Blue and John Crow Mountains (Jamaica) Inscribe

Many congrats on Jamaica's 1st WHS! Connection with a Intangible heritage of humanity element. Extended applause for Jamaica.

I enjoyed the inclusion of Blue Mountain Coffee, Usain Bolt, jerk chicken, an Indigenous Chief in attendence, and Bob Marley into the 2 minute Follow-up speech after inscription. "One Love, one heart, thank you."

The delegate and speaker was Lisa Hanna (Miss World 1993 and current politician)
