World Heritage Sites under Threat

Threats such as armed conflict, illicit trafficking, rapid urbanization and climate change have endangered 17 out of 82 World Heritage sites in the Arab region, according to Audrey Azoulay, the Director-General of UNESCO.  She was speaking at the opening ceremony of the 42nd session of the World Heritage Committee that took place on Sunday at the Bahrain National Theatre in the presence of Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa of Bahrain. Opened by the President of the Bahraini Authority for Culture and Antiquities, Sheikha Mai Bint Mohammed Al-Khalifa, the Committee will examine 29 nominations for inscription on the World Heritage List, 157 sites for their state of conservation, and one site for its possible deletion from the List.
