Climats, terroirs of Burgundy - had to choose few vineyard CLs with good architecture
Coffee Cultural Landscape
Costiera Amalfitana
Curonian Spit - unique landscape
Hallstatt-Dachstein
Konso
Loire Valley
Nord-Pas de Calais Mining Basin - historically significant and comprehensive example of coal mining
Orkhon Valley
Portovenere, Cinque Terre, and the Islands
Pyrénées - Mont Perdu - best example of European transhumance
Quebrada de Humahuaca
Rice Terraces of the Philippine Cordilleras - one is enough? (Hani)
Richtersveld

Not really sure why nord pas de Calais is continuing whilst blaenavon is relict!
How to choose between the 3 coal mining landscapes?
I didn't find grand hornu very compelling
Views on comparison between the other 2?

My selection:

Bam Cultural Landscape (one of the best in the region)
Lavaux vineyard terraces (one of the best examples in continental Europe)
Loire valley
Pico Island (one of the most unique examples of wine growing worldwide)
Portovenere, Cinque Terre, and the Islands (I chose this over Amalfi as I feel it has much more to offer; and close to the Amalfi area I would choose Paestum)
Pyrenees - Mont Perdu
Rice Terraces of the Philippine Cordilleras
Wachau Cultural Lamdscape (mostly for the imposing abbeys)

Sites I would be happy to save:

Costiera Amalfitana - visually beautiful
Konso - for their rich folk traditions and vernacular architecture
Orkhon - Ghinges Khan
Richtersveld - Great example of current nomadic lifestyle

Again, here is the link to the broader Cultural Landscapes category.

There are a lot of good choices here, but I'm self-imposing a limit of no more than one landscape per country. Here are ones that stand out to me:

1. Alto Douro -- historic wine-growing region in Portugal; known for Port wine
2. Costiera Amalfitana -- beautiful Italian terraced landscape with coastal villages, vineyards, and orchards located on steep hillsides
3. Hallstatt-Dachstein -- distinctive Austrian Alpine towns and landscape famous for its salt mines in use as early as the 2nd millennium BC
4. Lavaux, Vineyard Terraces -- beautiful Swiss vineyard terraces on the shores of Lake Geneva
5. Loire Valley -- valley filled with architecturally unique châteaux and towns with ties to the French Renaissance
6. Upper Middle Rhine Valley -- landscape of towns, castles, and vineyards built along a European route of transportation in use for over 2,000 years
7. Konso -- dry stone terraces still in use by the Konso people of Ethiopia
8. Orkhon Valley -- showcases Mongolia's nomadic history and culture
9. Rice Terraces of the Philippine Cordilleras -- iconic terraced landscape demonstrating a 2,000 year-old method of rice production
10. Coffee Cultural Landscape -- coffee fields and Spanish-style towns highlighting Colombia's coffee-growing heritage
11. Tequila -- agave-growing region of central Mexico where tequila is distilled

This category is also missing an entry (the last I believe): Palestine: Land of Olives and Vines - Cultural Landscape of Southern Jerusalem, Battir
How do we rate this one?

I agree, although I think it was justified for that reason.
