The first potential addition to Mexico's tentative list in 10 years includes the former nomination "Industrial complex of the textile factory La Constancia Mexicana and its housing area" which was dropped from their indicative list in 2013. The new serial nomination includes 8 components. Perhaps this is an indicator of an updated tentative list?

Industrial Heritage of Puebla 19th and 20th centuries (Mexico)

If Mexico nominates any part of "Greater Big Bend" in a updated tentative list, for example "Maderas del Carmen", North America might have a 2nd "International Peace Park" emerging soon. Moreover, there are other transboundary nominations that have been discussed directly with the US National Park Service, such as the "Kino Missions".

Big Bend National Park UNESCO Description:
"The park serves as the keystone for a group of surrounding large protected areas, including Big Bend Ranch State Park (Texas), Black Gap Wildlife Management Area (Texas), and three protected areas in Mexico: Áreas de Protección de Flora y Fauna Cañón de Santa Elena, Maderas del Carmen, and Ocampo. The Mexican protected areas encompass more than 800,000 hectares, and Big Bend park managers collaborate with Mexican managers on resource issues. The river corridor is also a protected area, designated and managed as the Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River on the U.S. side of the border and Monumento Natural Rio Bravo Del Norte on the Mexican side.

This one came as a shock to me this morning, as it is just a few miles from my hometown. My initial reaction was, "It doesn't stand a chance!" But who knows. I still have to process it.

Stubborn Chinese re-invade World Heritage candidate, Mavhuradonha barely a year after government ban, arrest of officials

The article is about the illegal/controversial mining of a Chinese company in the Mavhuradonha Wilderness in Zimbabwe, which is "compromis[ing] the chances of the nature reserve being listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site".

But no indication of the Mavhuradonha Wilderness on Zimbabwe's T list, so I guess it deserves it place here as an aspiring T-list candidate.

They even have a "Strategy" to achieve inscription! See
"Além disso, pretende-se que a Rede das AHP possua capacidade operacional e institucional para a formalização de uma candidatura a Património da Humanidade da UNESCO, com o reconhecimento da valia histórica destes recursos."

Sun Temple of Martand
(a former TWHS site)



Buddhist heritage site at Harwan, Srinagar

NMA for declaration of 3 monuments of Kashmir as world heritage sites: Tarun

Not sure about the Pandhrathan or the Harwan sites. Didn't really find anything online and my knowledge of India is limited. Is it just more political rhetoric, as was remarked about a previous article about Indian world heritage proposals? It might be, certainly when we read sentences as

"He said now the Narendra Modi Government is correcting the past mistakes of prejudicial historians and Archeologists."


"Tarun Vijay, while maintaining that Modi's policy of restoring peace in Kashmir is being acknowledged world over said during his recent tour abroad the people and leaders who met him were wandering about miraculous and enormous transformation of J&K from a land of bloodshed to the land of new hope and opportunities."

It does read very much like propaganda.

A campaign to nominate COYOACÁN (Mexico City) is in development, maybe an extension? There is a basic nomination website and the area included is significant. This is the second aspiring nomination from Mexico we've heard about recently, this may lend credence to an update to Mexico's tentative list.

According to this travel program link, the Case à palabres de Dalaba (Guinea), see it with google images, is classified by UNESCO, which is false. It reminds me of Filitosa in Corsica whose tourist promotion had indicated the same thing. I simply think that UNESCO helped in its restoration but I imagine that with Mr. Lazare Eloundou Assomo at the head of World Heritage and who encourages Africa to have more properties inscribed to repair an unbalanced list, we can imagine with this case à palabres one day on Guinea's tentative list.
