The World Heritage Committee outcomes show that the state parties seek the listing, and the WH Committee State Parties reinforced listing as a primary goal by inscribing 37 properties- 20 that were well prepared with the value statement, criteria, documentation and management plans; and another 17 properties that were recommended as not ready, unprepared for listing, by the Advisory Bodies. These actions highlight the shortcomings of listing as an objective in itself, rather then the full intent of the World Heritage Convention to conserve and manage listed properties effectively while the value of these places is respected to build mutual understanding and peace while uplifting the local communities.
