World Heritage Review 101: New Sites
This issue is dedicated to the latest additions to the World Heritage List, spectacular properties ranging from Gabon’s Ivindo National Park and Iran’s Trans-Iranian Railway to Thailand’s Kaeng Krachan Forest Complex and France’s Cordouan Lighthouse.
During its 44th session, the World Heritage Committee examined not only World Heritage site nominations submitted in 2021, but also those from 2020: 34 new sites, 29 cultural and five natural, were inscribed; three previously listed properties were extended. This brings the total number of sites now on UNESCO’s World Heritage List to 1,154.
