I would like to advocate:Full name of site: Les forets sèches de l'Andrefana
(The dry forests of the west) Country
: Madagascar TWHS
?: Yes, https://www.worldheritagesite.org/tentative/id/5314Short description of site:
Madagascar contains five distinct biomes, each containing extremely high levels of endemism. Rainforests have already been inscribed in the site, Rainforests of the Atsinanana (East), but the other biomes are of equal importance from a ecological perspective. The tentative site currently consists of five protected areas in the Dry Deciduous Forest zone in the west of the island, and two from the Arid Spiny Forest zone in the south. All of these preserve habitats that are both extremely unique and severely endangered. Criteria
: My preference would be to split this into two sites. Taking the two Spiny Forest areas and combining them with the geographically coincident "Pays Mahafaly" sites, which have been languishing on the tentative list since 1997, would create one very special mixed site, in my opinion. However, even as proposed, this is an important site, worthy of inscription.
