Please note:
The World Heritage Committee and the Secretariat are working to improve reporting methods. For this session:
- Two different reporting techniques were used: general summaries (as in the reports of previous sessions) and summaries of each intervention (similar to the Summary Records of the Executive Board of UNESCO).
- The discussions are presented in the order of the agenda items but they were not necessarily examined in that order by the Committee. For a better understanding, readers may wish to consult the timetable of the 26th session (WHC-02/CONF.202/3 Rev). The table below summarizes the dates on which each agenda item was discussed:
