ICOMOS is pleased to share the “Guidance on Developing and Revising World Heritage Tentative Lists”, that is has elaborated with the assistance of IUCN, ICCROM and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, within the context of the ongoing reform of the Nomination Process. Guidance on Developing and Revising World Heritage Tentative Lists
This document responds to an increasing need of basic guidance for States Parties when developing and revising their Tentative Lists.
On its first part, the Guidance presents and explains the basic concepts around the Tentative Lists within the context of the Nomination and Upstream processes. It identifies the key steps for preparing and revising Tentative Lists, as well as the stages where the Advisory Bodies might be consulted by the States Parties to provide advice, in terms of methodology and analysis for the development or revision of Tentative Lists, thereby reducing the risk of spending resources to prepare nominations that may be unlikely to succeed.
