India too nominates 3 sites.

note that the provided list includes incomplete nominations--that's the reason why some countries seem to have more than 2 sites, because even the incomplete nominations are counted. to support this, in the case of india, the western ghats nomination (which is surely a natural nomination) is not included in the iucn's list of nominations to be evaluated in 2010. also, bali, which is likely a cultural landscape nomination, is not included in the iucn list.

m_m is correct my list is include both completed and incompleted nomination document.

I also forget two sites from Vietnam
- Cat Tien National Park
- Thang Long - Hanoi

but from IUCN information - Cat Tien National Park is maybe one of the incompleted document, but for Hanoi if it is completed it would be great as Hanoi is going to celebrate its 1000 years next year to be listed in such significant year will be great for Vietnamese capital city.

Sorry about that Mr. editor. I guess it really wasn't a reply but I am curious about the nomination process. Could you possibly send me some information about that?

e. There are 2 sites which are likely to have problems convincing the ABs that they have genuine OUV beyond their close connections with a famous person (which it has already been established is not an adequate enough reason) - Darwin's Landscape Laboratatory and Mt Vernon

More on this

Thank you. I think that looking at an unusual site like the Classen Ranch would be like painting a picture of modern (postmodern) art since it involves so many factors that we are currently plagued with. The competition is kind of stiff.
I am going to try to get in touch with the Secretary of the Interior, Mr. Salazar to see about the possibility of being considered for the tentative list.

Back in February we were wondering who was taking on the job of hosting the 2010 WHC - I posted what I had found out about Bahrain postponing their previous agreement to do so until 2011.
(See - wreply )

You may have picked this up before but apparently Brazil has taken on the job

Ah well - Parati should be ok then for a resubmission (though we don't yet know why it "failed" this year) and Brazil doesn't appear to have a completely new nomination so isn't trying too hard to make the most of its opportunity!!

don't forget that brazil has two options here since it had two unsuccessful nominations for the last two years: san cristobal and paraty.

Thanks Durian for getting the full list.

There are actually some interesting sites on there.
The Pacific has three being put forward. It seems the conference from a few years back is starting to have some pay off. The Bikini Atoll one is particularly interesting with its focus on Nuclear Colonialism.

And there are actually a few sites that look really important on there. Amsterdam (finally) and Jaipur's Jantar Mantar stand out as actually being world class.

However it is not all so inspiring. The usual suspects are also chucking anything more than 100 years old onto the list.
I was just thinking that the list would be greatly improved by yet another Sacred Chinese Mountain or a medium sized French town with a big Cathedral.

Iran has really stepped up its push to get sites on the list, with a real focus on the western part of the country. Five sites from the Western end of the country have been inscribed since 2003 and 6/10 inscribed are in this area. The two put forward for next year are also in the same part of the country. It certainly makes it easier to tick of more sites in a visit.
In case you were searching the official title of Shrine of Ardanil it is Historical Ensemble of Sheikh Safi al-Din Ardebili

Still too many sites from Europe. As an American I am very excited the US has some new nominations. That being said, I have no idea why Mount Vernon was even nominated. It may be a fantastic site, (I have never been there), but I have my doubts of Outstanding Universal Value, and to attempt to get the site insribed first makes little sense. (I know this issue has been discussed elswhere in the forum)

Nominations such as the Frank Lloyd Wright Buildings or the Petrified Forest National Park are deserving sites that truly belong on the World Heritage List. The Frank Lloyd Wright Buildings need to be preserved, some are in sad shape, and it will be nice to have a worthy 20th century site, a time period highly under-represented just because its not "old" enough. Either one of these sites would have been a great start to the new US sites in place of Mount Vernon.

I was wondering is this the final list? Nothing outside of this has the possibility of being inscribed in 2010? Hopefully a fair number of them will be rejected. Don't get me wrong, I want all of these countries to have their cultural and natural heritage preserved. But there are too many similar sites that are so over-represented Unesco needs to make a stand.

I am personally really excited for -
Papahanaumouakea, USA
Hahoe and Yangdong Villages, South Korea

Taking a second look at the list I see there are many extentions of nominated sites (Ngorongro, Pirin, Railways of India, Monte San Giorgio, Roros, Kyiv, Goslar). This leaves the total number of new nominations at 29. Does anyone know whether extentions also count as proposed nominations for the 40 nominations limit a year? I don't think so.
Actually, if I remember correctly resubmissions of pending sites of earlier referrals or deferrals (as is the case with Putorana, Sarazm, ichnite sites) doesn't count either. This further reduces the number of full new nominations to 26.
Out of 40 possible nominations a year this is a rather low figure I believe.

Does anyone know the detail of Amsterdam's nomination? I heard that Dutch goverment proposed just a small area along one canal excluded the famous Dam square or the old cathedral, is this information true or not?

If true, do you think UNESCO will inscribe Amsterdam or reject it again?
