Abstract (in English)

This discussion paper explores the potential for advisory body collaboration in relation to World Heritage site evaluation and the integration of community and rights concerns. Prior to this, IUCN commissioned a report on how to strengthen IUCN the evaluation process of World Heritage nominations to better reflect community and rights concerns. This brief follow‐up report does not deal with all the content matters as such (these inputs are informing a revised version of the first report), but in overall terms explores the relevance of initial findings as well as identifying opportunities for follow‐up action by the advisory bodies. Initially expected to be a 3‐4 page brief, the consultant chose a lengthier format to address the contents in more detail. A summary of key findings and recommendations may be found on pages 8 and 9.
