The Revised Periodic Reporting Questionnaire
The World Heritage Committee at its 39th session (Bonn, 2015), decided to suspend the Third Cycle of Periodic Reporting and launch a two-year Periodic Reporting Reflection Period from 2015-2017.
Under the coordination of the World Heritage Centre, an Expert Group, comprised of cultural and natural heritage experts, representatives from the Advisory Bodies (ICCROM, ICOMOS and IUCN) and the UNESCO Institute of Statistics, was entrusted with drafting an updated format of the questionnaire and developing proposals for improving the process, relevance, analysis and use of data. The revised and streamlined questionnaire takes into account feedback received from the Periodic Reporting Reflection Survey (carried out in November 2015) to which over 75 States Parties replied. Both format and content have been updated and optimized for relevance and usability.
A large number of changes and improvements have now been introduced. For example, themes relevant to current World Heritage concerns such as Sustainable Development and synergies with other cultural and biodiversity-related conventions have been integrated and specific data input and gathering has been facilitated through questions tailored to the needs of different types of sites (natural, cultural, mixed sites as well as transnational and transboundary).
