Periodic Reporting is one of the two main monitoring mechanisms under the World Heritage Convention and a statutory requirement for all States Parties.
It consists of an online self-assessment tool subdivided into two sections: Section I, which concerns the implementation of the World Heritage Convention at the national level; and Section II, which concerns the implementation of the Convention at the level of each World Heritage property. The outcomes of this reporting exercise are then analysed and presented to the World Heritage Committee; they also inform the Action Plan(s) created for World Heritage in the region for the next 6-8 years.
As the scheduled in-person meetings to prepare the Third Cycle of Periodic Reporting in the region of Asia and the Pacific had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the World Heritage Centre moved the training entirely online, in the form of regular, short training sessions for National Focal Points in the region of Asia and the Pacific, which ran between September 2020 and March 2021. The present page lists the videos of each of these sessions, for ease of reference.
These sessions were organized for National Focal Points for Periodic Reporting in Asia and the Pacific, who automatically received invitations to the online meetings. They were recorded and made available immediately to the National Focal Points so that they may be shared with Site Managers and other stakeholders involved in the Periodic Reporting exercise in Asia and the Pacific.
The online training sessions and the close follow-up of the Periodic Reporting exercise at the Asia and the Pacific Unit of the World Heritage Centre are made possible thanks to the support of the UNESCO/Republic of Korea Funds-in-Trust, made available by the Cultural Heritage Administration of the Republic of Korea.
