The World Heritage Centre is the focal point and coordinator within UNESCO for all matters related to World Heritage. As the permanent Secretariat to the World Heritage Convention, it is responsible for all statutory and policy matters of the sessions of the World Heritage Committee. In this context, it provides advice to States Parties regarding the preparation of nominations for the World Heritage List, organises international assistance from the World Heritage Fund upon request, and coordinates both the reporting on the condition of sites and the emergency action undertaken when a site is threatened.
