Abstract (in English)

The State Party of the Philippines ratified the World Heritage Convention in 1985 and has since inscribed six sites in the World Heritage List. Currently, the Tentative List of the Philippines has 19 sites presently and has evolved since 1993 with several notable listings in 2006. Sites were edited and eliminated in 2009, and new listings were made again in 2015. Considering the numbers of the sites that were still listed since 1993 and later years, the current evaluation process of the Tentative List was challenging. However, the evolution in various years indicates the attempt of the State Party to develop the Tentative List for future nominations to the World Heritage Committee. As a project for ICOMOS Philippines (ICOMOS PH), this project has been initiated to investigate the current stage of the Tentative List of the Philippines and its strengths and weaknesses and to identify a pathway through the institutional history of the tentative list within the context of the State Party of the Philippines. This research focuses on investigating the practical experience of heritage practitioners in the country through interviews in order to conduct a systematic analysis and assess the possible challenges that could affect the Tentative List requirements and process The succeeded desktop review and the interviews revealed a set of issues occurred in the system. Accordingly, the issues-based analysis indicated keys importance that were used in the strategy design process. The output of this research is the preliminary strategy as well as some suggestions for better evaluation process of the Philippine World Heritage Tentative List.
