Abstract (in English)

This guidance document has been prepared by the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), with the assistance of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, as support for States Parties at the earliest stage of the World Heritage nomination process – before or upstream of a nomination being submitted. To provide guidance and capacity building directly to States Parties, the World Heritage Committee formally adopted an “Upstream Process” in its Operational Guidelines for the Implementation of the World Heritage Convention in 2015. Since then, the Committee has placed a high priority on providing advice to States Parties at the earliest stage of the World Heritage nomination process, ideally when Tentative Lists are being developed or revised. As a consequence, the number of Upstream Process assistance requests related to the revision of Tentative Lists is increasing: in 2019, for instance, more than 50 percent of requests submitted by States Parties concerned Tentative Lists. In addition to the Upstream Process, the World Heritage Committee endorsed in 2019 the principle of a two-phase nomination process, with a “Preliminary Assessment” by the Advisory Bodies of a site proposed by a State Party from its Tentative List as the first phase, before a full nomination for inscription on the World Heritage List is developed and submitted as the second phase. As a result of these two initiatives, and as the quality of Preliminary Assessments will depend on the quality of the Tentative Lists, there is an increasing need to provide basic guidance for States Parties on the development or revision of their Tentative Lists. This guidance document responds to this need. It is based on examples of recent updates of Tentative Lists, and aims to provide guidance that is widely applicable.
