Abstract (in English)

The 1972 World Heritage Convention is founded on the premise of international cooperation. It recognizes that some places are of irreplaceable value to humankind, and signifies the commitment of all nations to support their protection. This global covenant is uniquely suited to facilitate conservation of the world’s ocean, where connectedness is a fact of life. Recognizing that World Heritage had a key role to play in ocean conservation, the World Heritage Marine Programme was established in 2005 with the goal to ensure the protection of marine places of Outstanding Universal Value.
