Ratified the Convention 10 Mar 2010. I can find nothing which indicates that a T List is under development nor any likely Cultural Site. It does have 3 National Parks and 3 Ramsar sites. Monte Alen would seem possibly to be the most significant of these. This book on Gorillas suggests it could be a WHS http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=VMtbmkOYD-kC&pg=PA347&lpg=PA347&dq="monte+alen"+UN ESCO+World+Heritage&source=bl&ots=prFZ9H_B-n&sig=nldQJTimJaFJhst6A-f1y0VAaSM&hl=en&sa =X&eiSao Tome
. Ratified the Convention Jul 25 2006. No public announcement on any T List but some indications in some journals that it is progressing e.g "At present, São Tomé and Príncipe has not yet established a tentative list of universally significant properties within their borders; they are still in the process of doing so. In a workshop conducted in January last year, they began by establishing a pre-inventory of a number of sites, also drafting a tentative listing of Roça Agostinho Neto." From http://www.dac.gov.za/publications/heritage%20booklet/africa%20unknown.pdf
This is the Workshop referred to http://www.epa-prema.net/documents/rapports/report2009.pdf
Roca Agostino Neto is my profile suggestion for a new WHS - made in the earlier days of this Web site - but, having revisited it just 2 years ago and seen its continued decline, it will need more work than I fear little Sao Tome can carry out - even with WMF etc helpBahamas
. Not a signatory to the Convention (only state of the Americas not to)
Bahamian News flash after the 36th UNESCO conference in Paris Oct 2011 - "During the conference, the (Education) Minister also met with the Director General of UNESCO where he discussed The Bahamas' participation in the World Heritage Movement. The Minister told the Director General that The Bahamas has many historical sites that could be included in the registry of World Heritage sites and that he would be looking to advance this cause further on his return home."
BUT an earlier news flash expected Bahamas to sign the Convention by October.
Preachers Cave was to be declared a National Historic/Heritage Park and might be the first nominated site.? http://www.eleutheranews.com/local/1657.htmlTuvalu
Member of UNESCO but hasn't signed the Convention.
Cultural values would seem to be concentrated in the "Intangible" area
Funafati Conservation Area would seem to be the only possible Natural site http://www.timelesstuvalu.com/tuvalu/export/sites/TTO/Attractions/funafuti_conservati on_area.html
