Third Cycle (2018-2024)

The questionnaire for the Third Cycle of Periodic Reporting was revised within the framework of the Reflection on Periodic Reporting (2015-2017) and incorporates an extensive number of changes and improvements. As well as countless minor improvements, the major developments include full integration of the Sustainable Development approach, an emphasis on synergies with other conventions and programmes relevant to World Heritage and the creation of a monitoring indicator framework for the implementation of the World Heritage Convention. This new format was adopted by the World Heritage Committee at its 41st session in Krakow, Poland (2017).
