UNESCO recommends that Venice be declared a World Heritage Site in Danger

Date: May 26, 2024 Time: 09:18:47

UNESCO has recommended that Venice and the Venetian Lagoon be included in the list of World Heritage in Danger. According to the organization, the city and its surroundings may be lost due to climate change and the negative impact of tourism. This was reported by TASS.

UNESCO urged the Italian authorities to do everything possible to solve “these long-standing problems”. The organization also asked the government to report on the results of studies to assess the risks that cruise ships and other large ships may pose near Venice.

“The World Heritage Committee regrets that the reported achievements in the implementation of the committee’s previous decisions do not reflect significant progress in addressing persistent and complex problems,” the organization said.

Separately, UNESCO expressed concern about construction plans in and around Venice. Large infrastructure projects, experts say, can, along with other factors, lead to “irreversible changes to the facility.”

“Some of these longstanding issues have already led to the deterioration of the property’s inherent characteristics and attributes, especially those related to its cultural and social identity and integrity,” the organization said.

Earlier, the United States officially returned to UNESCO after a 5-year absence. The organization’s executive director, Audrey Azoulay, called the country’s reinstatement “great news.” We talk about it in more detail here.
