"Myanmar has also submitted drafts for 12 other sites to be considered for UNSECO World Heritage status."

Hoping they will submit nominations for Shwedagon and their wildlife/national parks.

Cultural landscape of Lake Chad (Chad, Niger, Cameroon, Nigeria)

Wow, this seems like the nomination is being submitted for 2021! Not 100% though, thoughts?

Would ICOMOS and IUCN experts go there with the risk posed by Boko Haram?

It appears that UNESCO is already pretty active in the area and "is supporting Member States in their efforts to inscribe the Lake Chad basin on the World Heritage List, with the organization Craterre, and to identify certain sites that could be established as biosphere reserves"
see - https://en.unesco.org/biopalt/landscapes
Whenever it goes forward the implication is that it would be with UNESCO support as part of the bigger project to rehabilitate Lake Chad and hence, presumably, is likely to succeed

It's due to the political changes in Romania. The left wing PSD lost its majority and now they have a right wing minority goverment. Both PNL (irght) and USR (liberal) are for the inclusion of Rosia Montana, they are also the likely winners of the next parlamentary elections scheduled for late 2020/early 2021, so if nothing changes dramatically, we are likely to see RM inscribed in 2021.

Bulwarked Fortifications of the "Raia" (Border) (Portugal)

Vila Viçosa, Renaissance Ducal Town (Portugal)


There have been reports indicating both dossiers have been sent to UNESCO. Perhaps, there will be 2 complete dossiers of which Portugal will indicate their preference for 2021.

It looks like they are too late for 2021 (the text speaks about "in the coming weeks", while the deadline was at Feb 1)
