( 2-6-2013 ) Item 8 of the Provisional Agenda: Establishment of the World Heritage List and of the List of World Heritage in Danger (8B)

8E: Adoption of retrospective Statements of Outstanding Universal Value

This Document presents the Draft Decision concerning the adoption of one hundred ninty-six retrospective Statements of Outstanding Universal Value submitted by fifty-eight States Parties for properties which had no Statement approved at the time of their inscription on the World Heritage List.

Due to the large number of Statements (totalling nearly 900 pages for translation), these Statements are reproduced in the Annex in the original language they were submitted by the State Party concerned. Some translations have commenced and the Statements will be finalized and uploaded after the 37th session of the World Heritage Committee, subject to availability of funds.
The annex contains the full text of the retrospective Statements of Outstanding Universal Value concerned in the original language submitted.
Draft Decision: 37 COM 8E, see Point II.
