From the recent interview report with Director of Department of Fine Arts who is also part of national World Heritage Committee. The Government will focus on Si Thep First and then will decide again what should be next nomination between Wat Mahathat and Phuphrabat. So it is not decided yet!

The Italian candidate for 2023 might be "Evaporite karst and caves of Emilia Romagna Region"

Gessi triassici, sfida aperta per diventare patrimonio Unesco

The path to candidacy is still long, uncertain and difficult. There are deadlines: after the pre-evaluation in September 2021, the hypothetical official UNESCO evaluation will follow, perhaps in February 2022 or more likely in February 2023.

Whoa, this takes me off guard! Something is really moving! I'm curious to see what happens, if I'll happen to go there I'll try to intercept news. Just for your interest, the rocky formation in the background is the Pietra di Bismantova.

Sado Gold and Silver Mine (Japan)

Looks like postponed because of opposition from South Korea. Likely delayed until at least 2024.

Here is an interesting piece that elaborates on the reasons Sado may be delayed.

"Japan previously led an effort to create a system in which UNESCO does not register sites nominated under a separate program, UNESCO's Memory of the World, if the registration is opposed by another member state." - Japan's Sado gold mine faces uphill climb to World Heritage list

Okay, now it looks like Sado will be recommended/submitted after Nationalists were upset (including former Prime Minister Abe). It will be moving forward apparently by this coming Tuesday. Expect controversy as I am fairly sure S. Korea (and maybe China) will actively campaign against inscription amongst the world heritage committee members. A lot will depend on the ICOMOS evaluation. Pushing through this nomination completely overturns Japan's argument concerning the UNESCO Memory of the World Register, which determined that if another nation does not support a nomination (once public) over historical issues, the nomination should not be approved (until discussions/diplomacy resolved the issue). This may eventually be another addition to the "Controversial at inscription" connection if the nomination is successful.

Influence of Domestic Politics

"On Jan. 18, a group of 55 conservative Liberal Democratic Party lawmakers, including former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and policy chief Sanae Takaichi, called for Kishida to ignore South Korea's concerns and submit the resolution before Feb. 1. At a Jan. 20 meeting of his party faction, Abe said that to take into consideration South Korea's objection by avoiding an argument was a mistake."

"(Takaichi) urged the government to recommend Sado for registration before the deadline, saying that if it was postponed, it would damage Japan's honor."

Sado's Edo Period OUV

"The fact that a gold mine unparalleled in the world was operated during the Edo Period is what makes Sado worthy of being designated a World Heritage Site. I don't think we should avoid discussion (of the Korean wartime labor issue). But that's a different discussion from one about the gold mine as a World Heritage site," Hanazumi said."

Seemingly no nomination from Germany in 2023? News about an official Canadian nomination have gone pretty quiet. Any news about what is official from China or Turkey?
