Funeral and Memorial Sites of the First World War (Western Front) (Belgium, France)

I just found this news item of June 2015 (in Dutch) - it will be 2018

Damavand (Iran)
- mixed site

It does not specify a date, but it essentially says it has been submitted alongside the Lut Desert, so there is potential for 2017, but 2018 seems more likely.

And Taq Kasra (Iraq) (on our Missing List as Arch of Ctesiphon)

Very interesting to note that this news came from the Iranian News Agency and was headed "TEHRAN, Aug. 02 (MNA) – Iranian and Iraqi cultural heritage organizations have formed a joint committee to work for registration of Taq Kasra for World Heritage Status."
In a non-political world this might signal nothing more more than a fine example of "international cooperation" aimed at the preservation of cultural artifacts. In the real world however this involvement of Iran in Iraq would seem to be another example of Iran's support for the Shia led government of Iraq which is of of course not exactly good news for Iraqi Sunnis and is a part of the reason for the growth of ISIL. The West too is somewhat ambivalent on the whole matter- if the Iranian-supported Shia militias are the only ones capable of defeating ISIL in Iraq on the ground then so be it - but it has its down side. See this for background on Iran's military involvement in Iraq https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iranian_intervention_in_Iraq_(2014%E2%80%93present)

The second interesting aspect is that Ctesiphon, although situated in Mesopotamia, primarily represents the Iranian cultural narrative - it was a capital of the Parthian and Sassanian empires. The assistance being given by Iran in this matter, as well as having the sort of political aspects mentioned above in terms of involvement in Iraqi affairs, would also seem to possess an element of Iranian cultural promotion - a reminder that this geographic area has long been Iran's to shape and influence!

As for its chances of being handed to UNESCO in 2016 - well successful as Iran has been with its own sites of late I just can't see it happening.

Probably safe to omit Sado and Moldams from 2018.

Potential Nominations for 2018

- Hall in Tyrol – The Mint (Austria)
- Tr'ondëk-Klondike (Canada)
- City Walls of the Ming and Qing Dynasties (China)
- ShuDao (China)
- Megaliths of Carnac (France)
- Volcanic and Forested Areas of Martinique (France)
- Great Spas of Europe (Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, France, Belgium)
- Cross-border space Maritime-Mercantour (France, Italy)
- Hydraulic Engineering and Hydropower, Drinking Water and Decorative Fountains in Augsburg (Germany)
- The Qutb Shahi Monuments of Hyderabad Golconda Fort, Qutb Shahi Tombs, Charminar (India)
- Mozu-Furuichi Kofungun, Ancient Tumulus Clusters (Japan)
- Ring of Cenotes of Chicxulub Crater, Yucatan (Mexico)
- Myauk-U Archaeological Area and Monuments (Myanmar)
- Koloniën van Weldadigheid (agricultural pauper colony) (Netherlands)
- Historic Center of the City of Trujillo (Peru)
- Traditional Buddhist Mountain Temples of Korea (Republic of Korea)
- Madinat al-Zahra (Spain)
- Jaén Cathedral [extension] (Spain)
- Ed-Dur Site (UAE)
- Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks (USA)

Certainly some conjecture at this point for Mozu-Furuichi Kofungun, the Klondike, and Hopewell. Japan's 2018 nomination is likely a three-way race between Jomon, Sado, and Mozu-Furuichi Kofungun. The later may be the frontrunner based on some reports on the Jomon sites and controversy with Sado. Hopewell is certainly the frontrunner in the US, if a nomination is submitted (which is not guaranteed at this point).
