Other endangered sites include ones in Libya, Iraq and Syria.
Liverpool’s World Heritage Site is still in danger – but it is in some remarkable company.
There are 55 sites worldwide on Unesco’s danger list – from ancient cities in war zones to rainforests threatened by logging and mining.
Liverpool is on the List of World Heritage in Danger because Unesco is worried new developments – especially the £5bn Liverpool Waters scheme – could threaten the very things that make the city’s World Heritage Site so special.
Unesco’s World Heritage Committee will meet again in Poland in July and may decide that “Liverpool – Maritime Mercantile City” is no longer endangered.
This week Liverpool council will approve a new management plan for the site as part of an effort to persuade Unesco to remove Liverpool from the danger list.
