Well, I have a review written for that too but with all the problem to submit it don't expect any tentative sites for a while.

Thinking of going diving at Port Royal in summer but only after the conference. Wouldn't be surprised it is deferred/referred anyway.

We should by now be getting some leaked "news" about how evaluations for the 2019 WHC have gone!

I found this article dated Feb 13 about JAIPUR.
India had until Feb 28 to answer ICOMOS "concerns" about "illegal constructions" within the proposed boundaries. Doesn't sound too hopeful for an immediate "Inscribe" recommendation by ICOMOS - of course that doesn't prevent India from getting it pushed through at the WHC!!!

SILA "may" have been withdrawn following a negative review from IUCN - Dated 29 Jan.
2019. Auto translation of 1st para - "La Sila will not be a candidate to enter the UNESCO World Heritage Site . The Governing Council has decided to "postpone its presentation - reads the note from the dicastery - as the candidacy has received a negative assessment by the UICN (International Union for Conservation of Nature), evaluation body of the Heritage Committee World-wide competent for natural sites "
But, if you read further, the whole subject seems mired in uncertainty, political intrigue and regional rivalry!!! Do we have an Italian Forum member who can shed more light on the matter??

This update regarding KIZILIRMAK (Turkey) doesn't indicate that IUCN have actually recommended it but doesn't say that it hasn't!!! Instead, as recently as Feb 2019 Turkey was still meeting with IUCN and providing information

KLADRUBY nad LABEM Stud Farm (Czechia) seems quite bullish about its chances in this report from Jan 2019 about a meeting with ICOMOS in Dec 2018 at which it presented further requested info

I am hoping that the Committee Members would stick to the recommendations of the IUCN/ICOMOS, except for highly exceptional cases. I know this is an obvious observation but it just feels like inscribing a site that is recommended by IUCN/ICOMOS to defer or not inscribe dilutes the very essence of assessment.

"If everything goes as expected, the architectural marvel of the great Kakatiyas, Ramappa temple, located at Palampet village in Mulugu district, may get the 'World Heritage Site' tag as the Government of India (GoI) nominated the temple as India's only nomination for World Heritage Site selection process to be undertaken by the UNESCO this year"

So I suppose Jaipur isn't pushing through this year?

India's only nomination for World Heritage Site selection process to be undertaken by the UNESCO this year"

It will be 2020. They've submitted the dossier in 2019 (before Feb 1), so the nomination will be discussed at the session in 2020.

Also, a country cannot change its nomination in such a late stage.

Cultural Heritage Nomination Basic Info Doc of 43WHC

I do miss a couple of cultural sites that we expected for 2019, that are re-nominations after a referral or withdrawal in previous years:
- Sheki, The Khan's Palace (Azerbaijan)
- The Normandy Landing Beaches, 1944 (France)
- Prosecco Hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene (Italy)
- Brâncusi Monumental Ensemble of Târgu Jiu (Romania)
- Key Works of Modern Architecture by Frank Lloyd Wright (USA)
