Gebel Qatrani Area (Egypt)

Egypt to nominate fossil hotspot to UNESCO's list

the file will be presented to UNESCO before the end of this year - So does this mean it's up for inscription in 2023? Or more likely 2024?

I'll post this here to be complete.

No "Buffer Zone" proposed I note!!
The UK has a record of disliking such zones (as does US as it opens up issues of landowners rights) and always claims (sometimes with great difficulty e.g Tower of London) that its legal framework provides adequate protection!
I note that we only have 13 sites under the Connection "No buffer Zone". Cant believe there are that few but note that IUCN allowed Vatnajokull to get away without one recently.

I see that the visitor Centre in Fosinard Station is outside the inscribed area (but not the railway which goes on from it and 1 station!). The nearby visitor tower is included as being just within the edge - confirming that it gives a rather limited view of the site..
I wonder whether all the relevant landowners and organisations are fully on board or whether multiple strong objections will emerge during the consultation (not much time to deal with them?). Forestry?? Deer Hunting??? Local Peat cutting??? In Ireland such local interests have been strong enough to stymie e.g Ceide Fields.

The Sado complex of heritage mines, primarily gold mines (Japan)

"Suematsu said the UNESCO office cited "insufficiency" in the content of the application but he was not more specific. "It is extremely regrettable, but we have decided to resubmit the documents," he said. An interim document will be submitted by the end of September and a formal version by Feb. 1 next year." - News Article

Hikone-Jo (Japan)

This development regrettably will further delay Hikone-Jo until 2025.
