Serial World Heritage Nomination of the Silk Roads Workshop 

This workshop will bring together the relevant authorities of each State Party in the sub-region (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan), China, as well as international and national experts from UNESCO and ICOMOS. 

The objectives of the workshop are:

  • to agree upon and adopt the Concept Paper and strategic approach for the serial World Heritage nomination of the “Silk Roads”;
  • to identify potential sites for the serial nomination;
  • to carefully examine the procedure for the serial nomination; and
  • to secure the political commitment of the States Parties in the sub-region regarding the serial nomination

In November 2005, a UNESCO sub-regional workshop for the follow-up of the 2003 World Heritage Periodic Reporting Exercise for Central Asia was held in Almaty, Kazakhstan. The participants adopted an action plan that prioritized the serial nomination entitled “Central Asia Silk Roads”. Further support for this approach was expressed at a workshop held in Turfan, China in August 2006, which was attended by fifty participants from Central Asian countries, China and UNESCO. This meeting also provided the opportunity to formally present the work being undertaken in China on the potential Silk Roads nomination.
