Red List of World Heritage in Danger

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Location of the endangered world heritage sites

The Red List of World Heritage in Danger is maintained by UNESCO . It is based on the World Heritage Convention signed by 193 countries. Of those cultural and natural monuments that are on the World Heritage List , UNESCO uses this Red List to highlight those whose existence and validity are threatened by serious and specific dangers such as damage, destruction or disappearance. UNESCO calls for extraordinary conservation efforts for these sites.


Western Wall and Old City of Jerusalem , which is on the Red List. In 2007 UNESCO had to intervene in the dispute over the ramp to the Dung Gate (right).
The Iguaçu National Park in Brazil was on the Red List from 1999–2000. The pressure resulted in a street running through the park not being reopened.

There are many reasons for threats. Land development, urbanization, natural disasters, armed conflicts, clearing, poaching, vandalism, neglect and extensive tourism can endanger World Heritage sites . Threats can already be identified, as if buildings have been demolished, or only possible, as if there is no legal basis for protection.

An inclusion in the Red List is always an appeal to the international community. The application is submitted by UNESCO or the country concerned. The decision is adopted by the World Heritage Committee with a two-thirds majority. In this case, the “community of states” should participate financially, technically and politically in the protection and rescue. The World Heritage Committee also has its own funds from which aid measures can be financed. The World Heritage Committee sometimes threatens to add a site to the Red List against the will of the affected state. This announcement alone can initiate significant conservation efforts in some countries.

"[...] the Committee is of the view that its assistance in certain cases may most effectively be limited to messages of its concern, including the message sent by inscription of a property on the List of World Heritage in Danger and that such assistance may be requested by any Committee member or the Secretariat. "

“[…] The Committee believes that, in certain cases, its assistance may most appropriately be limited to communications of concern, including notification of an item being inscribed on the World Heritage List in Danger, and that such assistance may be from anyone Member of the committee or the secretariat can be requested. "

- Implementing provisions for the World Heritage Convention, Item 177

After the entry, the World Heritage Committee formulates a program for remedial measures and creates the schedule, preferably coordinated with the state concerned, if necessary against its will. The measures to protect the site are checked, the processes are determined and it is checked when the condition that gave rise to the registration will be eliminated. A site can only be removed from the Red List when the cause of the threat to entry has been eliminated. If the hazard is not eliminated and the outstanding importance of the site is irretrievably destroyed, the site or part of it can also be removed from the World Heritage List, although this rarely occurs (see Former World Heritage ).

Entries in the red list

In July 2019, 53 of the 1113 World Heritage sites were on the Red List.

  • Natural heritage sites are marked with an “ N ” and cultural heritage sites with a “ K ”.
  • Monuments that belong to both the world cultural and the world natural heritage bear a " K / N ".
