A consultation with experts was organized during the month of May 2021. This included an online meeting of experts organized on 7 May (Part I) as well as on 26 and 27 May (Part II). Based on their profiles and respecting geographical and gender balance, some of the experts invited to complete the survey were also invited to participate in this online meeting.
On 7 May (Part I), the Secretariat presented the results of the online survey and background information regarding the listing mechanisms of the 2003 Convention and established breakout groups. Between 8 and 25 May experts were invited to work in breakout groups focused on one of the four main themes of the reflection:

Theme A: overall approach to the listing mechanism

Theme B: issues related to the criteria of inscription

Theme C: issues related to the follow-up of inscribed elements

Theme D: methodology for the evaluation of nominations

The purpose of the breakout groups is to engage in depth on the issues identified and to propose alternative approaches for improving the listing system. The results of the breakout group’s work were presented in the form of preliminary recommendations for discussion during the plenary sessions of the expert meeting on 26 and 27 May (Part II). A set of final recommendations resulting from the experts’ meeting will lay the basis for the discussions of the Open-ended intergovernmental working group, Part I of which took place on 8 and 9 July 2021 and Part II which took place on 9 and 10 September 2021.

The working documents for the expert meeting are available below.

In addition to the experts invited as the main participants, the plenary meeting of experts was made accessible to other experts from States Parties as observers pursuant to Decision 14.COM 14
