The UNESCO World Heritage Centre, in cooperation with the Indian National Commission for UNESCO, Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), and the relevant Field Offices of UNESCO, is organizing a sub-regional training workshop on the Second Cycle of the Periodic Reporting in Asia and the Pacific in Dehradun, India to launch this exercise for Central, West, and South Asian countries. Periodic Reporting is a process whereby States Parties report on the status of the implementation of the World Heritage Convention in their respective territories and the state of conservation of properties inscribed on the World Heritage List.
The workshop gathers national Focal Points of the 14 States Parties from Central, West, and South Asia (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan), international resource persons, Advisory Bodies (ICOMOS, IUCN and ICCROM), staff from 8 UNESCO Field Offices and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, and it involves introductory presentations, drafting exercises, group discussions and presentations.

The objectives of the workshop are:

- to present and explain to the national Focal Points the process and new format of the Periodic Report;
- to mobilize active participation of States Parties for the Periodic Reporting exercise in training of site managers at national and/or sub-regional levels;
- to provide guidance to the States Parties on drafting Statements of Outstanding Universal Value for properties inscribed on the World Heritage List in the region; and
- to promote regional cooperation through exchange of information and experience in the implementation of the World Heritage Convention.
