Reports on the state of conservation of properties inscribed on the World Heritage List

ICOMOS takes an active part in monitoring the state of conservation and management of properties inscribed on the World Heritage List through the organization of reactive monitoring missions and advisory missions, by providing technical advice on specific issues (development projects, management plans ...) facing certain properties and also by drafting reports on the state of conservation of properties that are examined by the World Heritage Committee and based on which a recommendation is adopted. A reflection on the threats to World Heritage properties has also been conducted and tools have been implemented, for example enabling States Parties to conduct Heritage Impact Assessments to determine the potential impact of development projects on the outstanding universal value of a property.
