WHC locations

Correlation between the location of the World Heritage Committee (WHC) meeting and the inscription of sites in the same year which are very closely related to that location - whether the city itself, a nearby site, or another site in the same country. Paris / France is excluded because it is the seat of the WHC and hosted many meetings.

The connection belongs to World Heritage Process connections.

  4. Add some knowledge or insight (whether significant or trivial!) about WHS for the users of this site
  5. Be explained, with reference to a source
