World Heritage

Since 1972, 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 is the official advisor on nature under the World Heritage Convention. The Convention is known as "the most widely accepted international conservation treaty in human history鈥, ratified today by 195 States Parties. Natural World Heritage sites conserve the planet鈥檚 most significant ecosystems, species, and natural phenomena 鈥 from the highest mountain peaks, through forests, deserts, wetlands and reefs. Despite their iconic status, World Heritage is facing a funding crisis for many years and sites are not immune to growing threats from biodiversity loss, climate change and pollution.

The need for a new approach

It is critical to the long-term future of the World Heritage Convention that it remains relevant to current and pressing conservation challenges. There is a growing triple planetary crisis with threats from biodiversity loss, climate change and pollution. Despite the aspirations for a sustainable world, pressures on nature continue to grow and progress to ensure just and equitable futures for all peoples is increasingly challenged.

These challenges are manifested in World Heritage sites: a 2020 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 assessment showed that one third of sites do not have secure prospects, and today there are 16 natural World Heritage sites included on the list of World Heritage in Danger.

As the Convention celebrated its milestone 50th anniversary in 2022, 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 developed an inclusive Union-wide strategy for 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料鈥檚 World Heritage work. This Strategy provides a blueprint for 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料鈥檚 contribution to ensuring the delivery of the goals of the Convention, and ensuring it makes the fullest and most relevant contribution to wider conservation efforts.
