Periodic reports

Every six years (or more) the Authority must produce a Periodic Report for the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO. A Periodic Report is required of all World Heritage Areas to update knowledge about their original nominations and how they are being managed and monitored. The Wet Tropics Periodic Report is submitted to the Australian Government to become part of an overall report on the governance and state of Australian World Heritage properties. In turn, the Australian report is submitted to UNESCO as part of a report on the Asia Pacific region.

Periodic reports have two sections. The first addresses the legislative and administrative arrangements of the Australian Government to fulfil its World Heritage responsibilities. The second section addresses the condition of the properties.

 

Periodic reports can be downloaded below.
