3) Member states and special territories with no T-list (18):
Sao Tome, Equatorial Guinea, Niue, Cook Islands, Djibouti, Liberia, Brunei, Monaco, French Carribean (France), Chechnya (Russia), French Guyana (France), Faroe (Denmark), Man (UK), Bougainville (PNG), Marianas and Guam (USA), Falkland and St. Georgia (UK), Chagos (UK), Tokelau (NZ).

I would add Navajo Nation

My reasons are it is nearly 10 times larger than any other Native American reservation (same size as West Virginia). It has a very high level of autonomy, has its own president, flag, seal, and language. There are considerable natural and cultural sites that could be considered for world heritage status.

Cultural - Navajo National Monument, Hovenweep National Monument
Natural - Little Colorado River Gorge, Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon, Shiprock, Rainbow Bridge National Monument
Mixed - Canyon de Chelly National Monument

Bahamas


I found this as well - so, with The Bahamas having now just ratified the "WH Convention", this site is one which has previously been "earmarked" as a potential WHS
Fort Fincastle

Seems a bit weak to me even with UNESCO bending over backwards to help!! Wiki only has 6 lines on it! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Fincastle

I hope there will be natural sites (Blue Hole, Pink Beach, Banks, bird islands).

Some possible candidates around the thematic colonial architecture, piracy, slavery and also Bimini Road, Columbus Landing Site...

Glad to see Kyrgyzstan and Botswana out of this list, also Myanmar changing category. Hoping for Zambia also leaving next year. The representativeness of the WH List, grows. Not so glad about the procedures to inscribe the second palestinian site, but still that continues to alter the balance of distribution of WH around the world.

Sounds like the Kuwait Towers nomination may be progressing. Perhaps 2017?

To sum up, quite a lot of changes are underway.

1) First tentative lists are soon expected for: Sao Tome and Principe, Niue, Cook Islands, Brunei, Equatorial Guinea and Djibouti.

2) First nominations are soon expected for: Tonga, Maldives, Angola, Singapore, Kuwait, Gibraltar (UK) and maybe finally Jamaica.

3) El Salvador is to revise its T-list, so maybe a second nomination soon.
Myanmar and Rep. Congo are also currently working on a second nomination.

4) UAE, Chad, Uruguay and Benin are soon expected to have their second nomination.

Despite this, how many nominations will actually be put forth total? Maybe 30 or so, and then which ones make it to a WHC? 5-10?

Still, I do look forward to potential nominations from these missing countries.
