World Heritage Sub-regional Consultative Workshop for Promotion of Transbounday co-operation
As a follow-up to the project "Preservation for the Frozen Tombs in the Altai Mountains", which highlighted the international significance of the cultural heritage of the Altai Mountains, extending over China, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Russia and the need for transboundary cooperation in view of its conservation, the UNESCO World Heritage Centre is initiating a similar exercise for the Golden Mountains of Altai, whose Russian part was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1998.
The Sub-regional World Heritage Consultative Workshop for Promotion of Transboundary co-operation will involve the four States Parties involved to discuss cultural value and management arrangements for a possible transboundary nomination for the Altai Mountains. This workshop will also provide an opportunity to present case studies of transboundary co-operation that currently exist for World Heritage properties and will also explore other potential transboundary protection areas in Asia.
The workshop is jointly organized by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the Mongolian National Commission for UNESCO, in close co-operation with the UNESCO Office in Beijing, China.
