                               Final Report


1. The first session of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Protection
of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage (hereinafter referred to as
the "Committee") was held in Paris from 27 June to 1 July 1977 and was attended
by representatives of the fifteen States members of the Committee.

2. Representatives of the International Centre for the Study of the
Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property, the International
Council of Monuments and Sites and the International Union for Conservation
of Nature and Natural Resources (hereinafter referred to as the "Rome Centre",
"ICOMOS" and "IUCN" respectively) attended the meeting in an advisory capacity.
The discussions were also followed by representatives of two other States Parties
to the Convention, of the United Nations and of a non-governmental organization.

3. The full list of participants is to be found in Annex I to this report.


4. After welcoming the representatives of States members of the Committee,
the Director-General underlined the importance of the meeting for the
pursuit of one of the fundamental objectives of the Organization - the promotion
of the preservation and presentation of the cultural and natural heritage of
mankind. He stressed the innovative character of the World Heritage Convention
under which the Committee was established: for the first time, an international
convention was concerned with both the cultural and the natural elements of
the environment of man and, again for the first time, the international
community as a whole was called upon to assume responsibility for protecting
the cultural and natural heritage of outstanding universal value. He expressed
the hope that action taken by the Committee would not induce States Parties to
neglect that part of their heritage that would not be included in the World
Heritage List. The Director-General also recalled the different tasks before
the Committee, referring in particular to the establishment of the World
Heritage List and the List of World Heritage in Danger and to the provision
of international co-operation under the World Heritage Fund. Before concluding,


he thanked the Rome Centre, ICOMOS and IUCN for their valuable assistance in
preparing the documentation for the meeting and expressed his conviction that the
same spirit of co-operation with these three organizations would continue to


5. The Committee elected by acclamation Mr. Firouz Bagherzadeh (Iran) as its

6. A member of the Committee proposed that Rule 12 of the Provisional Rules
of Procedure should be amended to provide for the election of four
Vice-Chairmen. This proposal was supported by two members and adopted by the
Committee. The Committee then proceeded to elect by acclamation the representa-
tives of the Arab Republic of Egypt, France, Nigeria and Poland, as Vice-Chairmen,
and Mr. Peter H. Bennett (Canada) as Rapporteur.


7. The Chairman invited the members of the Committee to examine the Provisional
Agenda prepared by the Secretariat. The representative of the Director-
General proposed that an item on "Other matters" be added to the Agenda; under
this item would be considered the offer of collaboration from the International
Organization for the Protection of Works of Art (document CC-77/CONF.001/5)
and the proposed donation of Professor Badawy (document CC-77/CONF.001/7). He
also suggested that the methods of work of the Committee should not be discussed
separately but rather in conjunction with items 7 and 8 of the Provisional Agenda
since these items were closely related.

8. With the above modifications and on the above understanding, the Agenda
was adopted.


9. In reply to a suggestion that the Rules of Procedure should be examined by
a working group which would report back to the Committee at a later plenary
meeting, the Legal Adviser stated that, in the absence of a text formally approved
by the Committee, the Provisional Rules of Procedure would prevail and he
therefore proposed that they be examined at an early plenary meeting; this would
not prevent the Committee from amending the Rules of Procedure at a later stage,
if necessary. He added that the Rules of Procedure would probably only assume
their final form after two or three sessions of the Committee. After some
discussion, the Committee decided to examine the Rules of Procedure one by one.

10. Several amendments were proposed to bring greater clarity to the text or
to reflect more closely the terms of the Convention. The Rules relating to
the election of officers and to the voting procedures gave rise to some comment.

11. With respect to the eligibility for re-election of members of the Bureau,
participants considered that, although rotation in the membership of the
Bureau was necessary, continuity in the work of the Committee was of paramount
importance. Various proposals followed, some providing for re-election of all
officers and others for re-election of the Vice-Chairmen and the Rapporteur only.
A further proposal which sought to limit the eligibility of all officers for
immediate re-election to a second term of office was finally accepted.


12. An explanation was requested on the different weightings required for a
majority vote under the terms of paragraphs 2 and 3 of Rule 28. The
Legal Adviser referred members to paragraph 8 of Article 13 of the Convention
which stipulated that "Decisions of the Committee shall be taken by a majority
of two-thirds of its members present and voting". This provision was included
in an Article of the Convention dealing with substantive questions and not with
procedural matters. It was therefore considered that a two-thirds majority should
be required on substantive questions. However, according to the terms of
paragraph 4 of this Rule, it would be the Committee which would decide, by a
simple majority, whether the question to be put to the vote would or would not
require a two-thirds majority.

13. Participants requested that two points raised in connection with the Rules
of Procedure be noted in the summary record. The first related to the
meetings of the Committee which, in the opinion of one member, should be given
wide publicity. The second concerned the suspension of the Rules of Procedure
which, as confirmed by the Legal Adviser, could be initiated by any State member
of the Committee.

14. A corrigendum setting out the modifications made by the Committee, as well
as an amendment proposed by the representative of the Director-General to
Rule 8.2, was examined at the last meeting of the Committee which then proceeded
to adopt unanimously the revised text of its Rules of Procedure. (Annex II)


15. The Chairman invited the members of the Committee to consider the main
working document and gave the floor to the representative of the Director-
General who introduced the document which had been prepared with the assistance
of the Rome Centre, ICOMOS and IUCN.

16. Some discussion ensued on the method to be followed in examining the
different points raised in the document and it was decided to establish
two working groups with which the Rome Centre, ICOMOS and IUCN would be associated
and which would review the proposed criteria for the inclusion of cultural and
natural properties in the World Heritage List, and a drafting group which would
formulate the decisions taken by the Committee on other matters. The Committee
proceeded to debate the general principles involved in establishing the World
Heritage List and to examine, one by one, the other questions raised in the


     (a) General debate

17. It was the opinion of several members that the Committee should issue a state-
ment on the whole philosophy underlying the Convention and, in particular,
the need for a World Heritage List. Others felt that the discussion on the
criteria for inclusion of properties in the List would necessarily raise the
philosophical concepts involved.

18. Several members felt strongly that the World Heritage List should be
exclusive and that, because of its impact, the List - in which balance would
be sought geographically and between cultural and natural properties - should be
drawn up with extreme care. Responsibility for ensuring the exclusive character


of the List would rest first of all, with the States nominating properties
and secondly, with the Committee which would have the right to reject nominations;
the adoption of criteria which would be used by the Committee to filter
nominations therefore constituted a very important first step.

19. The feasibility of adopting criteria gave rise to some discussion, with
member's referring to the difficulty already experienced in establishing
criteria at the national level, to the changing and subjective nature of
evaluations of qualities, to the impact of Western thought and to the difference
between perception from within a given culture and perception from outside. The
representative of ICOMOS, in reply, recognized the difficulty of drafting
criteria to be applied to cultural property throughout the world and of
translating concepts into words that were meaningful on a universal scale; an
attempt had been made but he realized that, in the light of experience as
nominations were examined, the criteria would probably require some adjustment.

20. Hope was expressed that sufficient information would be provided to States
to enable them to select properties that were truly eligible for inclusion
in the List and that the criteria adopted would assist States in restricting
their choice of properties nominated. In this connection, one proposal put
forward sought to impose on States a limit in the number of properties that
they might submit in the first instance but, on reflection this was not considered
advisable. It was, however, decided that States would be advised to limit
the number of nominations submitted at a given time, on the understanding that
these nominations were not to be considered exhaustive.

21. Questions were raised with respect to the calendar for the submission of
nominations to be examined at the second session of the Committee. Many
members mentioned difficulties for their own national authorities in meeting
the deadline of 1 April 1978, particularly in those countries where complete
inventories had not yet been established. Several members strongly urged that
technical co-operation should be financed under the Fund for the preparation
of these inventories. The representative of the Director-General referred
participants in this respect to the Convention which explicitly provides that
requests for international assistance might also be concerned with identification
of cultural or natural property "when preliminary investigations have shown
that further inquiries would be justified" (Article 13 (2)). He added that it was
not necessary to submit complete inventories by 1 April 1978 and that other
nominations could be put forward to later sessions of the Committee.

22. Several members considered that an independent assessment by experts of the
nominations submitted would be essential and it was proposed that the
nominations should be transmitted, for comments and evaluation, to the Rome
Centre, ICOMOS or IUCN, as appropriate.

23. One member considered that States not Parties to the Convention should be
able to have properties nominated by a State Party for inclusion in the List.
Other participants inquired about the possibility of nominating properties not
situated in national territories, such as international sites, for instance the
United Nations building in New York, or regions such as Antarctica. However,
it was pointed out that the Convention was very explicit in this respect, Article II
referring to the submission by each State Party of inventories of properties
situated in its territory.

24. The Committee then proceeded to examine the working document paragraph by
paragraph and to put forward their comments which would be taken into account
by the drafting committee in formulating the decisions taken by the Committee.


    (b)  General principles relating to the establishment of the World
         Heritage List

25. Several participants felt that the fundamental notion of the Committee's
complete independence in evaluating nominations of States Parties should
be more emphatically underlined. Others foresaw that certain properties would
be re-evaluated in the light of new discoveries which may lead to the deletion
of properties from the List. The "loss of integrity" referred to as a reason
for the deletion of property from the List did not appear pertinent in the
case of cultural property; for example, monuments in ruins, obviously having lost
their integrity, could be eligible for inscription.

26. An emphasis given to properties which combine cultural and natural features
demonstrating the interaction between man and nature might, in the opinion
of some participants, be confusing in that it might appear to diminish the
value of properties outstanding only from the cultural or natural points of

27. Another participant suggested that it should be indicated at the site
itself that that site is included on the World Heritage List. On this
point, the representative of the Director-General informed members that a
World Heritage emblem was under preparation and this could well be used inter alia
at the sites. It was feared by another participant that sites not included in
the List and not marked by the emblem might be neglected by States.

28. The definition of "universal" given in paragraph 17 of the working document
was found to be incomplete, in that time also was a factor that modified
the appreciation of values.

     (c)  Criteria for the inclusion of cultural properties in the World
          Heritage List

29. It was proposed by several participants that, in the final text of the
criteria, no examples should be cited, in order not to prejudice the
decisions of the Committee. There was general agreement on this point.

30. The interpretation given of authenticity was challenged by several
members who did not consider that it necessarily entailed maintaining
the original function of property which, to ensure its preservation, often had
to be adapted to other functions. Another member specified that functions
could change but when this different function entailed fundamental and irreversible
changes to the original form, authenticity should be considered as lost. The
same member went on to plead that due recognition be given to "progressive
authenticity", for example, monuments and buildings that are constructed or
modified throughout the centuries but which nevertheless retain some form
of authenticity.

31. Taking into account the comments made in plenary, a working group under
the chairmanship of Mr. Michel Parent (France) reformulated the criteria
for cultural property. The Chairman of the working group presented to a later
plenary meeting the revised text on which several comments were formulated.

32. On the first criterion, the use of the word "spirit" was questioned and
was replaced by "genius". One member requested that the word "scientific"
referring to development be reinserted in criterion (iv). Another member
proposed that "significant" be added to criterion (v) before the words


"traditional style of architecture..". The same member queried the use of the
word "site" in the introductory lines and asked that this should be interpreted
as covering also groups of sites and large areas. This interpretation was
accepted by the Committee. There was some discussion on the advisability of
adding the word "immovable" to "monumental sculpture" in criterion (ii) but
this was not accepted.

33. With the above modifications and some minor changes in form, the criteria
were unanimously adopted by the Committee.

    (d)  Criteria for the inclusion of natural properties in the World
         Heritage List.

34. Some members questioned several changes made to the original draft text
prepared by IUCN. For instance, there had been a change of emphasis
from "representative" examples to "outstanding" examples in the different
criteria, with which one member did not agree. The same participant found that
too much emphasis had been laid on superlative examples (the highest, the largest,
etc.). Another member sought to reinsert manageability as a criterion; in
reply the IUCN representative considered that this should rather be taken
into account at the stage of allocating funds. It was decided that, as for the
text on cultural criteria, named examples would be excluded.

35. A working group under the chairmanship of Mr. David F. Hales (U.S.A.) then
reviewed in detail the criteria and presented a revised text to a later
meeting. With some minor changes in form proposed by the Chairman of the
working group, the criteria were unanimously adopted by the Committee.

    (e)  Format and content of the nominations for inclusion in the
         World Heritage List

36. The proposal to prepare one printed form for nominations of cultural and
natural properties that would provide brief explanations on the information
to be given was endorsed by the Committee which decided that it would be used
on a trial basis until changes became necessary. The list of information to
be provided by States Parties, which had been modified by one of the working
groups, was approved by the Committee.

37. On the question of model nomination files, there was some discussion on
the organizations to be entrusted with this work, on the feasibility of
associating the Bureau, and of the timing of their preparation. Whereas members
of the Committee felt that model files would be extremely valuable to States
Parties in preparing their nominations, they recognized that it was no easy
task to prepare fictitious dossiers. It was finally decided that ICOMOS and
IUCN would prepare model files which would be reviewed with the Secretariat
before they were dispatched to States Parties. One participant hoped that
these model files would be relatively simple and not too sophisticated.

    (f)  Procedure and calendar for the submission of nominations

38. the very tight calendar proposed was discussed in some detail, with many
participants referring once more to the difficulties their own governments
would have to face in preparing in time their nominations. The question of
limiting the number of nominations to be submitted by States was again raised, and
whereas the decision previously taken in plenary not to impose any limit was
maintained, it was decided that States would be requested to indicate an order
of priority among the nominations submitted. States would, at the same time,
be reminded that the process of submitting nominations was ongoing and that
nominations not considered at the second session of the Committee would be
examined at later sessions.


39. The exact role to be played by the Rome Centre, ICOMOS and IUCN gave rise
to some discussion, one member proposing that all nominations should be
transmitted automatically by the Secretariat for comments and evaluation to
the competent organization. The representative of the Director-General agreed
that the organizations had an extremely important role to play in reviewing
the dossiers submitted by States Parties, and in particular in putting them
into order but he feared that the addition of another step in the already tight
calendar might entail delays. It was therefore decided that the organizations
would have a dual role to play: firstly, they would review the dossiers with
the Secretariat in order to complete them and put them into order and secondly -
under their direct responsibility - they would send to members of the Committee
their evaluations of nominations against the criteria adopted.

40. In order to present the Committee at its second session with a set of
nominations that would be balanced by category and by geographical and
cultural region, it was decided that the Bureau, meeting in June 1978, would
review all the nominations received and decide which would be forwarded to the
Committee. The following calendar would thus be followed:

       November 1977: dispatch to States Parties of Director-General's letter,
       together with printed nomination form;
       1 April 1978: receipt of nominations from States Parties;
       April/May 1978: dossiers will be received and completed, if necessary,
       with the assistance of ICOMOS, IUCN and the Rome Centre; translation
       and reproduction of dossiers;
       8 and 9 June 1978: meeting of the Bureau to decide on which nominations
       would go forward to the Committee at its second session;
       July 1978: dispatch of dossiers to members of the Committee;
       September/October 1978: consideration of dossiers at the second session
       of the Committee.

    (g) Publication of the World Heritage List

41. The Committee decided to defer to a later session decisions relating to the
form and periodicity of publication of the "World Heritage List".


     (a)   Format and content of requests for international assistance

42. Although one member found the list of information to be provided by States
in making requests for assistance under the Fund to be rather too complicated
and sophisticated, the Committee approved the content of requests for small-scale
and large-scale projects.

     (b) Procedure for the consideration of requests

43. The procedure proposed in the working document for the consideration of
requests gave rise to few comments and was adopted by the Committee.
Following the request by one member that assistance in documentation work should
be added, the drafting group felt that there was no need to add a specific
reference to documentation which appeared to be covered by the other activities
mentioned in Article 22 of the Convention.


44. With respect to the granting of international assistance, it was suggested
that, in view of the limited funds available, a fixed maximum sum should
be made available for each project. This would be difficult, responded another
participant, since each case would have to be considered separately in the
light of resources available under the Fund and arrangements for complementary
financing. Another proposed that such decisions should be taken on the basis
of an annual budget submitted to the Committee at each session.

     (c)  Order of priorities for the granting of international assistance

45. General agreement was expressed on the factors proposed for consideration
in determining an order of priorities but some comments were made on the
concepts of "educational value" and "socio-economic benefits". The training
of local personnel, essential for the continuity of almost all projects, was
considered an important factor that had to be taken into account. One member
expressed concern over the implications of the term "socio-economic benefits"
which might be misinterpreted, particularly in relation to tourism; he stressed
that if cultural property was used for touristic purposes it should be
adequately protected and socio-economic benefits from tourism should not
jeopardize the state of preservation of the property. While one member
sought to delete all reference to socio-economic benefits, the representative
of the Director-General suggested that the concept of socio-economic consequences
could be retained especially in connection with the preservation of historic
towns and quarters. In the opinion of another member, the socio-economic
aspects of projects raised a whole host of problems that could not be covered
at the present meeting. It was therefore proposed that this question be
taken up in depth at a later session. In the meantime, the phrase "consequences
from the social and economic points of view" was adapted.

    (d)  Standard agreement to be concluded with States receiving
         international assistance

46. It was agreed that a draft text of the standard agreement would be
prepared by the Secretariat and sent to members of the Committee well in
advance of the second session.

47. In the meantime, one member asked for clarification by the Legal Adviser
on the possibility of awarding assistance at all under the Fund in the
absence of a standard agreement. The representative of the Director-General
transmitted the reply of the Legal Adviser who could not attend the meeting: in
his opinion, Article 26 of the Convention related to the actual implementation
of a programme or a project once the Committee had decided to grant assistance
thereto - the terms and conditions of this assistance would be set out
in the agreement; he considered that Article 26 did not relate to preparatory
assistance (preparation of nominations to the World Heritage List or
preparation of requests for assistance under the Fund). The representative of
the Director-General added that such preparatory assistance would be provided
in accordance with regulations and procedures prevailing in Unesco.

     (e)  Emergency assistance

48. A discussion took place on the procedure for dealing with requests for
emergency assistance on which decisions might be required between sessions
of the Committee, with participants referring to the prerequisite of inscription
on the World Heritage List, to the possible role to be played by the Bureau and
to the limited time available if immediate measures were to be taken.


49. It was decided that requests for emergency assistance would be receivable
only from States Parties and only with respect to property included or
nominated for inclusion in the World Heritage List. If these two conditions were
met, the Secretariat would submit the request to the Chairman for decision in
consultation with the Director-General on the type and extent of assistance
to be granted.

     (f)  Technical co-operation

50. On many occasions, members referred to the desirability of providing,
under the World Heritage Fund, technical co-operation to States Parties
in preparing (i) nominations for inclusion in the World Heritage List, and
(ii) requests for international assistance.

51. The Committee decided that, at the request of States Parties, technical
co-operation would be provided under the Fund for these two purposes, in
accordance with the terms of Article 21(1) of the Convention and within the
limits of the approved budget (see paragraph 57 below). Such assistance
would be in the form of expert services or equipment. Authority would be
delegated to the Chairman who would decide, in consultation with the Director-
General, on the type and extent of preparatory assistance to be granted.

     (g)  Financial Regulations

52. The Committee had no comments on the text of the Financial Regulations
prepared by the Secretariat, and already noted by the General Assembly
of States Parties and the Executive Board of Unesco.

     (h)  Other matters concerning the granting of international assistance

53. The Committee decided to defer until a later session its decisions on
the establishment and publication of the List of World Heritage in Danger
and of the List of properties for which international assistance is granted
and also with respect to the share to be contributed by the recipient State
in any given project.


54. The Committee had before it the proposals of the Director-General on
organizations that could be invited to send observers to future sessions
of the Committee, as follows:

     United Nations;
     United Nations Environmental Programme;
     Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations;
     World Food Programme;
     International Bank for Reconstruction and Development;
     Interamerican Development Bank;
     Arab Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization;
     Council of Europe;
     Organization of American States;
     South-East Asian Ministers of Education Organization.


These proposals were approved with the following additions:

     United Nations Development Programme;
     Afro-Malagasy and Mauritian Cultural Institute;
     Organization of African Unity;
     Organization for Museums, Monuments and Sites in Africa;
     International Council of Museums;
     International Federation of Landscape Architects;
     International Organization for the Protection of Works of Art; and
     International Union of Architects.

The Committee also decided that other international organizations with activities
in the fields covered by the Convention could be invited to send observers, and,
in addition, as proposed by the Director-General, the Chairman of the
International Fund for the Promotion of Culture.

55. The representative of the Director-General indicated that the Secretariat
would closely re-examine the approved list of observers and should it
appear that additional organizations ought to be included, the matter would be
submitted to the meeting of the Bureau in June 1978.


56. At the last meeting of the Committee, the Chairman of the Drafting Committee
presented his report which, after a statement on the philosophy underlying
the Convention, set out the decisions taken by the Committee on the various
questions raised in the main working document. He drew the attention of
participants to Section IV of the document in which several recommendations
addressed to States Parties were formulated. With a certain number of modifica-
tions, which are referred to in the appropriate section of this record, the
report under the title of "Operational Guidelines for the Implementation of
the World Heritage Convention" was unanimously adopted.


      A. PROPOSED BUDGET FOR 1977/1978

57. On the basis of resources available in the World Heritage Fund, the
Secretariat proposed in document CC-77/CONF.001/6, a budget covering
(i) the preparation of model nomination files, (ii) technical co-operation to
States Parties in preparing their nominations and requests for assistance, and
(iii) emergency assistance required before the next session of the Committee.

58. Members found the sums available to be very modest indeed and some felt
that additional funds might be required. It was decided that the Bureau
should have authority to increase the budget provisions, if necessary in the
light of requests received and of funds available. With this proviso, the
Committee unanimously adopted the proposed budget.

        WORKS OF ART

59. The Scientific Director of the International Organization for the Protection
of Works of Art presented the offer of collaboration of that Organization.


60. While-some members encouraged the Committee to accept the proposed offer
which had no financial implications, others were uncertain as to whether
the objectives of that Organization were the same as those of the Convention,
particularly since the work of the Organization in question appeared to relate
to movable cultural objects. This led to an exchange of views on the
difficulty of distinguishing clearly between movable and immovable cultural

61. It was subsequently decided that the International Organization for the
Protection of the Works of Art would be invited to attend future sessions
of the Committee, in an observer capacity. However, a member of the Committee
asked that it be noted that this decision was in no way to be interpreted as
recognizing a special status for that Organization within the framework of the
World Heritage Convention and that there was no commitment on the part of the
Committee to grant a special status in the future.


62. The representative of the Director-General introduced document CC-77/CONF.001/7
which, at this stage, was submitted to the Committee for information only.
He explained that the offer included a house in Cairo and a capital fund of
$240,000 from which the interest could be used to finance a number of
fellowships in Egyptian archaeology; he pointed out that the administrative
and practical problems involved in the upkeep of the house would make it
difficult to accept that part of the donation.

63. The representative of the Arab Republic of Egypt supplemented the
information provided, giving further details on Professor Badawy's offer.

64. The Committee expressed sincere thanks to Professor Badawy for his offer
and authorized the Secretariat to study further the exact conditions of
the offer and to report to it at its second session.


65. The representative of the United States of America, on behalf of the
Secretary of State invited the Committee to hold its next session in
Washington. The Committee expressed its gratitude to the United States for this
generous offer, which was accepted by acclamation.

66. It was decided that the exact dates of the next session, which would take
place between 15 September and 31 October 1978, would be fixed by the
Chairman, in consultation with the Government of the United States of America
and the Director-General.


67. It was further decided that the Bureau would meet in Paris on 8 and 9 June
1978. The Rome Centre, ICOMOS and IUCN would be invited to attend.


68. At the last plenary meeting the Rapporteur presented an oral report in
which he highlighted the main conclusions and decisions of the Committee.
In concluding his report, he referred to one issue that had not been discussed


during the session, namely Secretariat assistance to the Committee: in view
of the volume and complexity of the administrative work involved both in the
preparation of documentation for the sessions of the Committee and in implementing
its decisions, which would be particularly heavy as from 1979, he suggested that
Unesco should carefully examine the situation and provide the additional staff
support necessary for the work related to the World Heritage Convention.

69. The Rapporteur's oral report has been incorporated into the present summary
record, of which it forms a substantial part.
