Periodic Reporting in Asia & Pacific Region

As a State Party driven exercise, Periodic Reporting is an essential process for the successful implementation of the 1972 World Heritage Convention; it is a systematic monitoring tool on the implementation of the Convention by the States Parties as well as on the state of conservation and management of each individual cultural and natural heritage property inscribed on the World Heritage List.

In this context, between 2010 and 2012, the States Parties from Asia and the Pacific were requested by the World Heritage Committee to conduct the second cycle of Periodic Reporting so as to provide the Committee with the necessary and updated information on the current state of the region’s world heritage properties. This reporting documentation is composed in two parts, with Section I focused on the implementation of the World Heritage Convention at national level, then Section II primarily focused on state of conservation of each cultural and natural heritage property. 

First Cycle

The first cycle of Periodic Reporting in Asia and the Pacific, was carried out over a period of several years up until 2003 and led to the successful production of the comprehensive publication entitled “Synthesis Regional Periodic Report for the Asia-Pacific Region 2003”. The subsequent progress and follow up to the first cycle was fruitfully achieved through the implementation of two regional programmes; “ActionAsia 2003-2009” and “World Heritage-Pacific 2009”, which directly respond to the conclusions, recommendations, and action plans resultant from the first cycle.

Second Cycle

The second cycle of Periodic Reporting for the Asia and Pacific was launched by the World Heritage Committee at its 34th session in Brasilia, Brazil in August 2010. All 41 State Parties to the Convention in Asia and the Pacific actively participated in this cycle and worked together on this vital component of the Convention.  The results of the second cycle will be presented to the World Heritage Committee in 2012 at the 36th session in St. Petersburg, Russian Federation, in June - July 2012.
