Just skimming through the analysis of the WH in Danger doc.
Big news there: Shakhrisabz is recommended for Deletion!

Thanks for this breakdown everyone.

9 recommendations to obscene seems quite low (not a criticism btw), will have to look how that compares to previous years.

Lots of good information in the documents; thanks to everyone involved in distilling the recommendations. I'm really curious to see what is in the missing addendums -- hopefully someone will realize soon that they are missing.

I wonder if the miner concerns listed previously are what led to the Klondike nomination to be withdrawn. I didn't see any updates on the Canadian nomination webpage or on their Facebook page.

I had a similar reaction, but with a handful of referred back nominations from the last 2 years and potentially overturned referral recommendation? It would not be surprising to have 20 inscriptions.

A3. Minor Boundary Modifications of Natural Properties

Asia / Pacific
Republic of Korea – Jeju Volcanic Island and Lava Tubes See document WHC/18/42.COM/INF.8B2.ADD

Very interested in seeing if the boundary modification was approved. The modification is quite large and would greatly expand the WHS.

I think they might be not finished yet (that's why they are in an addendum)

Weird autocorrect, should have been "9 recommendations to inscribe" obviously.

10 recommendations to inscribe:
- The Victorian & Art Deco Ensemble of Mumbai (India) C INSCRIBE
- Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region (Japan) C INSCRIBE
- Sansa, Buddhist Mountain Monasteries in Korea (Republic of Korea) C INSCRIBE 4 locations
- The Archaeological Border Landscape of Hedeby and Danevirke (Germany) CL INSCRIBE
- Roșia Montană Mining Cultural Landscape (Romania) CL INSCRIBE and IN DANGER
- The Caliph City of Medina Azahara (Spain) C INSCRIBE
- Gobekli Tepe (Turkey) C (TOP MISSING) INSCRIBE and IN DANGER
- Chiribiquete National Park - "Maloca of the Jaguar" (Columbia) M INSCRIBE
- Pimachiowin Aki (Canada) M INSCRIBE
- Aasivissuit - Nipisat, Inuit Hunting Ground between Ice and Sea (Denmark) CL INSCRIBE

And Gobekli Tepe - in danger

The biggest surprise for me is rejection for Quanzhou. And I think some referral/deferral will find their place on the list (crossed fingers for Colonies of Benevolence and Sassanian Archaeological Landscape... well for all the nominations!

Assuming that both referred sites of Ivrea and Fanjingshan are inscribed, Italy is still a no.1 country, China dream to be no.1 seem to be not happen easily. Italian seem to do everything to keep the throne.

Depends, the site is rather weak and the city has grown so much around these few spots that I would say Kamakura has a better chance than Quanzhou, but I guess I'm surprised if the state party doesn't get this inscribed with a political move.
I always considered this more of a tourism move because nobody really targets Quanzhou as a trip.

Generally it seems ICOMOS are trying to dissuade the similar sites across the world including wine culture, gothic churches, now war memorials (they didn't mention Hiroshima in their report). I don't think it's fair that the first one to inscribed is now the de facto for these. I heard a lot of people saying that Dachau is a better visit but I wouldn't know. All these mines that are inscribed already aren't all unique but most likely seemed that they were at the time.
