The “online technical meeting for Syrian properties on the List of World Heritage in Danger” aims at clarifying the process for the elaboration of the Desired State of Conservation for the removal of Syrian properties from the List of World Heritage in Danger (DSOCR). Taking the Ancient City of Damascus as a case study, the participants will analyse the situation and set the basis for the DSOCR proposal.
The meeting will be the first of a series of meetings, which will also focus on the Ancient City of Bosra and the Crac des Chevaliers and Qal’at Salah El-Din.
The meeting will gather the stakeholders of the World Heritage property, the site managers of World Heritage sites in Syria, as well as representatives of the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, the UNESCO Office in Beirut and ICOMOS. A follow-up meeting will be organized later, and will be dedicated to the review and finalization of the DSOCR for the property to be submitted to the World Heritage Committee at its next session.
This meeting is organized with the support of the Italian Government and the World Heritage Fund.
