Would interfere with the nomination of Bagan, which seems much more specific already:

Here is another article confirming the plan for Bagan for 2019.

Mrauk-U could easily be nominated as a Cultural Landscape. Look at the UNESCO description.

"The site measures 7 by 6 km and contains some 200 Buddhist monuments (temples, stupas, monasteries, etc.) mostly built in the 15th and 16th centuries AD. Located at the junction of the deltaic plain and the Arakanese mountains, the site is an exceptional example of the cleaver use of natural features (hill ranges, waterways, marshes) for fortification. A network of rivers provides easy access to the sea."

However, its just as likely that its Myanmar's next nomination (2020).

Brazilian Fortresses Ensemble (Brazil)

A year is not mentioned, but the language sounds conducive to a submission in time for the Jan/Feb deadline.

"proposal submitted by the Brazilian government to the United Nations."

Babylon - Cultural Landscape and Archaeological City (Iraq)

Can anyone determine the date for this one? Either its for 2019 or 2020. The article seems to claim a nomination file is already submitted, but then later mentions a submission date planned for mid-2018?

Author winterkjm
#142 | Posted: 18 Nov 2017 14:19 
Kaeng Krachan Forest Complex (KKFC) (Thailand)

This nomination was referred in 2015 and 2016. It could potentially turn up in 2018, but seemingly from the line below, 2019 seems fairly certain.

"Thailand has also tried to push. Kaeng Krachan Forest Park It has high biodiversity. As a third world natural heritage of Thailand, it has been submitted to the World Heritage Committee for consideration two years before and next year."

It hard to image Bagan not being inscribed in 2019, but challenges still may not sway ICOMOS. Check this article about the process of removing several hotels from the archeological zone. Perhaps ICOMOS will have something to say regarding time-tables? 15 years is quite the grace period, no?

Sila National Park (Italy)

Els has this linked for 2020, yet this articles seems to indicate a dossier being sent in a couple months?

"Sila National Park re-launches its candidacy at UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is how it will come to an end in the coming months that saw the Park tirelessly work for this recognition."

Pending? I don't think there is enough information at this point to confirm official nominations yet.

Brazilian Fortresses Ensemble (Brazil)

Babylon - Cultural Landscape and Archaeological City (Iraq)

Kaeng Krachan Forest Complex (KKFC) (Thailand)

Sila National Park (Italy)

Italian nomination of Sila National Park in 2019 would be ideal for Padova Urbs Picta in 2020.

In regards to Padova . . ."The next useful date is January 31, 2019. "

Kaeng Krachan Forest Complex (KKFC) (Thailand)

Pretty sure that this nomination will be pending indefinite until the teams of IUCN, UN and Thai government get a final deal with Karen tribe who live in KKFC. The latest development is there are Karen villagers reject the deal until Thai government agree to grant them citizenship, but Thai government disagree as they found that after WHS nomination, the number of adult Karen villagers suddenly triple without explanation so the government suspect of illegal immigrants and want to investigate.

The border issue with Myanmar is another issue, Thai prime minister mentioned that Myanmar is not ready for border talk.

ShuDao (China)

No confirmation here, but based on this excerpt there may be a decent chance this makes the deadline for 2019. Being a mixed nomination, it would make sense.

In 2015, Sichuan began preparing an application for the path to be included on the UNESCO World Natural and Cultural Heritage List. In March, the application was sent to the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development for review.
