Wadden Sea World Heritage
Report on the State of Conservation of the World Heritage property "The Wadden Sea" (2016)
With the extension of the Dutch-German Wadden Sea World Heritage Site (inscribed in 2009) with further areas in Germany and the Danish part of the Wadden Sea in 2014, the entire Wadden Sea is now on the World Heritage List. With the decision to extend the site, the World Heritage Committee requested the three states parties to submit a joint report on the conservation of the property and on the progress made in implementing the requests from 2009 and 2014. This report responds to these decisions of the World Heritage Committee and summarizes the most recent trends and developments concerning the state of conservation and factors affecting the property.
