3) Urban Typhoon Workshop at Dharavi,
Dharavi is one of the largest informal settlements in Asia. It
is also a highly diverse residential, commercial, and industrial area
with some of the highest population density levels in the world.
Koliwada's village-like character has been preserved even in the midst of
the dramatic urban and demographic changes that Mumbai has experienced in
the last century.
Dharavi was developed on marshlands in the periphery of Mumbai. It has
historically been a point of entry to the city for migrants from all
parts of the country. This 223 hectare settlement, home to at least half
a million people, finds itself today at the centre of greater Mumbai.
Situated a stone's throw away from the new Bandra Kurla Complex, Mumbai's
new financial centre, Dharavi has an estimated real-estate value of USD
A recent attempt by the metropolitan government of Mumbai to sell the
land to private developers (The Dharavi Redevelopment Project) has been
loudly decried as being undemocratic, as it leaves locals completely out
of the decision-making process, despite some dispositions for the in-situ
resettlement of longer-term residents. The government is now trying to
address the main flaw of the DRP, which is the fact that it is not based
on any type of solid study of Dharavi -in physical, demographic, social
or economic terms.
Koliwada is at the forefront of a battle for self-determination that
concerns all of the residents
of Dharavi and ultimately all the slum dwellers in India. After having
been completely ignored by the government and public institutions for
generations, the residents now claim the right to develop their
neighbourhood on their own terms. After all, Koliwada existed even before
Mumbai was called Bombay by the Portuguese. We are inviting students,
architects, and city planners from around the world and would love to
have you join us. The objective of the workshop is to find an acceptable
solution to the issue of Dharavi between the Indian government and the
people. For more information, please see
4) Department of the
Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts and Department for State
Development: Joint Media Release - Big Picture Study of Australia's
The Australian and Western Australian Governments will embark
on a 'big picture' strategic assessment of the Kimberley to ensure that future development does not
spoil the area's rich natural and cultural heritage.
The Australian Minister for the Environment, Heritage and the Arts, Peter
Garrett and WA's Acting Minister for State Development John Kobelke said the joint
strategic assessment was a major leap forward in resolving the tension
between development and conservation.
"For the first time, a federal and state government have agreed to
undertake a strategic assessment under the Environment Protection and
Biodiversity Conservation Act," Mr Garrett said. "We are making sure
we understand in advance the region we wish to protect, before choosing a
site for future industrial development.
"The Kimberley has outstanding landscapes and wildlife, glorious coastal
stretches, and invaluable Indigenous and historic heritage.
"It also contains massive reserves of oil and liquefied natural gas, of
huge economic value to the nation and offering financial benefits to
local Indigenous communities.
"Neither government wants piecemeal project development, with multiple
ports and processing plants along the Kimberley coast.
"So rather than dealing with a growing number of development proposals in
an ad hoc way and risking the slow destruction of our environment
and heritage, we will proactively use federal environment law to ensure
that any future development has a minimal impact on the things we love
WA's Acting Minister for State Development John Kobelke said the first
part of the assessment would identify a site for a single common-user LNG
hub for the Browse Basin. The area to be studied stretches from south of
Broome to Cape Londonderry on the Timor Sea.
"We are trying to minimise the impact of development on the natural and
cultural environment by finding the most appropriate location for a
common-user processing hub. We will also consider locations outside the
West Kimberley region," Mr Kobelke said.
"The identification of a hub will be followed by a wider strategic
assessment of the Kimberley, in consultation with conservation groups, industry and Indigenous
landholders. This will give us a detailed picture of all the region's
environmental assets including national and international heritage
"It will be the most comprehensive study of the region's values ever
undertaken. We will know what we need to protect, which will in turn provide greater certainty to
industry, governments and the community."
Mr Garrett said the historic agreement between the two governments marked
a new phase in Federal/State cooperation.
"This is truly a milestone for development planning in Western Australia
and Australia generally," Mr Garrett said.

5) Tourism at World Heritage Sites
- A Major Opportunity to Contribute
A significant 18 month long project will commence in early March
2008, organised by UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the UN World Tourism
Organisation, in conjunction with ICOMOS and IUCN, which will examine the
whole relationship between world heritage sites and tourism.
All World Heritage Sites will be involved, including Natural Sites and
Natural Protected Areas, Cultural Landscapes of mixed values, Cultural
Sites including archaeological and underwater, vernacular, 20th century,
industrial and military heritage sites and Urban places including
historic cities, towns and villages. Other international cultural
heritage, tourism and development stakeholders will also be engaged in
the project. Tangible as well as intangible values and relationships will
be part of the examination.
This is the first time that all four agencies have combined to examine
this relationship in a holistic manner, so it is an opportunity for all
interested parties to contribute.
I have the honour to be the ICOMOS representative on the project and am
keen to hear your views and ensure that your concerns are brought to the
project discussion table.
If possible, would you kindly let me know your thoughts on the following
1. How can tourism benefit heritage places and enhance the livelihoods of
the local communities who live and work near them?
2. What actions are necessary to protect heritage sites in the context of
3. What are the main issues that you would like to see raised and
examined in this project?
Please refer to any world heritage sites with which you are familiar. I
am really keen to gather as much information and as many views as
possible to inform this project. Do not worry if you can only send me a
few lines of text or one key point. Every response will all be a valuable
contribution to the project discussions.
If possible please respond via email to
email@example.com by 20
February 2008. The first workshop will be held in France in the first
week of March.

8) Interior Secretary Kempthorne
Selects New U.S. World Heritage Tentative List
WASHINGTON, DC - Secretary of
the Interior Dirk Kempthorne today
announced his selection of 14 U.S. sites to be included on a new
United States World Heritage Tentative List. The 14
properties on the new list will now be
eligible to be considered for nomination by the
United States to the UNESCO World
Heritage List, which recognizes the most significant cultural and
natural treasures on the planet.
"I am pleased to be able to take the necessary first step so
that these truly significant American
natural and cultural properties can be
considered for the most prestigious international recognition
accorded to properties of global importance,"
Kempthorne said. "Each of these sites is important to Americans as
well as others around the world."
World Heritage Sites are designated under the World Heritage Convention.
The United States was the prime
architect of the Convention, an
international treaty for the preservation
of natural and cultural heritage sites of
global significance proposed by President Richard M. Nixon in 1972,
and was the first nation to ratify it. There are 851 sites in
140 of the 184 signatory countries. Currently there are
20 World Heritage Sites in the United States already listed.
The new sites announced on the United States World Heritage Tentative
List can be considered over the next 10 years for formal
nomination by the United States as World Heritage Sites.
Each of the properties included on the new U.S. World Heritage Tentative
List is described below.
Neither inclusion in the Tentative
List nor inscription as a World Heritage Site
imposes legal restrictions on owners or
neighbours of sites, nor does it give the United
Nations any management authority or ownership rights
in U.S. World Heritage Sites, which continue to be subject to
The preparation of a Tentative List is a
necessary first step in the process of nominating
a site to the World Heritage List, because a
country cannot nominate a property unless it has been on its
Tentative List for a minimum of a year. Countries also
are limited to nominating no more than two sites in any given year.
The new Tentative List replaces an outdated one
prepared in 1982 and contains a diverse collection of natural
and cultural sites, located in 15 States and
one U.S. Territory. They include one that is being proposed
for both natural and cultural values. The owners include, among others,
several Federal agencies,
state governments, private foundations, and
religious groups. The list is scheduled to be formally submitted to
the UNESCO World Heritage Centre by February 1, 2008.
Secretary Kempthorne included these properties in
the Tentative List after receiving applications
from the owners of 35 sites, all of whom applied
voluntarily. In order to be included, a proposed site had to
meet several U.S. prerequisites in addition to appearing to meet
the stringent World Heritage criteria of international
importance; the U.S. prerequisites included the written
agreement of all property owners to the nomination
of their property, general support from
stakeholders, including elected officials, and a prior
official determination that the property was nationally
important (such as by designation as a National Historic
or National Natural Landmark). The World Heritage
nomination criteria can be
found on the National Park Service
Office of International Affairs website
The applications were evaluated by
National Park Service staff, non-government
experts on the World Heritage nomination process, and the U.S.
National Commission for UNESCO. The public had the opportunity to comment
on the proposals for the Tentative List. Nearly all the comments
received from Federal, State, and
local government executive and legislative
officials, and other stakeholders supported the inclusion of sites
in their States and communities.
Because UNESCO asks countries to
wait a year before submitting
nominations from their tentative lists, the first
time that any U.S. World Heritage nominations
drawn from the new List could go forward would
be at the beginning of 2009 with
consideration by the World Heritage Committee likely in the summer
of 2010. The Committee, composed of representatives
of 21 nations elected as the governing body of the
World Heritage Convention,
makes the final decisions on which
nominations to accept on the World Heritage List at its
annual meeting each summer.
The National Park Service manages all or parts of 17 of the 20 U.S.
World Heritage Sites currently listed, including
Yellowstone National Park, the Everglades,
and the Statue of Liberty, and serves as the
principal technical agency for the U.S. Government to the Convention. In
2005, the U.S. won a fourth term on the World Heritage Committee
and will serve until 2009.
General information about the Tentative List process is posted on the
Office of International Affairs website at
earlier National Park Service preliminary staff report, including
summaries of information on all 35 sites that were considered for
the Tentative List, is available at:
The original Applications submitted to the National Park Service
for the candidate sites can be found at

International Affairs at (202) 354-1802 or Gerry Gaumer in the National

CALL FOR PAPERS CLOSING SOON
16th ICOMOS General Assembly & International Scientific
Symposium, Quebec, Canada
29 September - 4 October 2008
CALL FOR PAPERS CLOSING SOON
Dear Australia ICOMOS members -
Its 2008! This is the year for the General Assembly of ICOMOS. The
General Assembly is held every 3 years, and as the gathering of the depth
and breadth our global membership, this is the most important formal
international meeting for identifying the needed work of ICOMOS, sharing
our experiences across an amazing spectrum of cultures, places and
challenges, and catching up with the business of the organisation,
including the election of the new members of the International Executive
Committee. It is always a memorable and exciting experience to attend an
ICOMOS General Assembly, and a great chance to meet and form friendships
with other heritage experts from all over the world.
We hope that many members have already marked these important dates in
their calendars for the year and are planning to attend. Our Canadian
colleagues are doing an amazing job to ensure that there is a successful
and diverse program of meetings and events, with many inspiring
experiences. We are sure that many Australians will welcome the
opportunity to visit the World Heritage City of Quebec - celebrating its
400th anniversary this year - and Canada, a nation with many historical
and contemporary parallels to our own.
The Australia ICOMOS Executive Committee is keen to ensure that there is
a healthy and energetic representation from Australia at the General
Assembly. So there will be regular up-dates and reminders in the
Australia ICOMOS email news throughout the year. Timothy Hubbard has
volunteered to be the local liaison person for all of us who are planning
to attend, following the example of Sue Jackson-Stepowski who did this
before the last General Assembly in China in 2005.
The General Assembly website is
this regularly to see new information.
- Overall Program:
- Meetings of the
International Scientific Committees (ISCs) will be held as part of
the program in Quebec.
- Finding the Spirit of
the Place is the theme of the International Scientific Symposium.
There are 4 strands to the discussions, and a framing paper at
- Deadline for the Call for
Papers is 15 February 2008. There is information at
about what is required at this stage. There is also an opportunity to
present posters at the Scientific Symposium.
- International Forum of
Young Researchers & Professionals in Cultural Heritage, Reflecting
Together on the Spirit of Place will be held on 27-28 September.
The deadline for submissions to the Forum is 1 March 2008.
This is a new element in the 'usual' General Assembly program, a
wonderful innovation by our Canadian colleagues. Let's see what we can do
to support the participation of Australian Young Professionals and
Researchers in this event.
How to get involved?
- If you are planning to attend
the General Assembly (or thinking about it), send an email to Timothy
firstname.lastname@example.org) so that he can develop a contact list
and keep Australian members well informed and we can share practical info
throughout the year.
- Donations to the Victoria
Falls/Mosi-oa-tunya Solidarity Fund can be made on your Australia ICOMOS
membership renewal forms later this year, or sent to the Australia ICOMOS
Secretariat now. The Fund is a source of financial support for ICOMOS
members from many other countries to attend the General Assembly,
ensuring a genuinely global event. Some funds were collected by Australia
ICOMOS last year, but this year is when the extra support is especially

Heritage (Fiji) seeks cultural heritage consultants
Development of a World Heritage Management Plan for the Historic
Town of Levuka, Fiji.
As a requirement of World Heritage Listing, and for the future
conservation of the heritage of Levuka, a Management Plan needs to be
developed for the proposed World Heritage site.
The Government of Fiji and its agencies have limited expertise in the
conservation of built heritage, and the development of Management Plans
for World Heritage purposes. The Department of Culture and Heritage of
the Government of Fiji is therefore seeking the services of a consultant,
or consultant team, to prepare a World Heritage Management Plan for the
proposed Levuka World Heritage site.

Development of World Heritage Legislation for the Historic Town of
The current legislation in Fiji provides inadequate legal protection to
ensure the long-term protection of the heritage of the town of Levuka. As
part of the nomination of Levuka to the World Heritage list it is
necessary to amend existing legislation and/or create new legislation to
provide for adequate legal protection for the heritage of the town.
The Department of Culture and Heritage is therefore seeking the services
of a consultant, or consultant team, to work with local counterparts to
advise on amendments to existing legislation and/or the creation of new
legislation for the protection of the heritage of Levuka.
