X.8 In subsequent discussions, ICCROM was considered a special case, as it is an intergovernmental organization. In this context, the Italian delegation asked the following legal considerations: (a) intergovernmental organizations participating in such an agreement? and b) Who is responsible for who in such agreements and what? In view of the intergovernmental nature of ICCROM and the Convention, and in order to avoid duplication, the Italian delegate proposed that ICCROM be the priority partner in the field of World Cultural Heritage training and be consulted on all requests for training assistance to ensure the quality and effectiveness of training actions as part of the training strategy adopted. This proposal was adopted by the Committee. The delegate from Mexico stressed the importance of a regional approach to training. The world heritage sites will only be listed after carefully assessed as the best examples of the world`s cultural and natural heritage. Australia has 19 World Heritage sites, five of which are located in whole or in part in Queensland. X.1 The secretariat presented a summary of WHC-96/CONF.201/11 on cooperation between advisory bodies and the World Heritage Centre. Given the scale and complexity of the work and relatively static funding opportunities, the Secretariat, the advisory bodies and the Committee expressed concerns about the need for close cooperation between the Centre and the three advisory bodies to avoid duplication, improve costs and accelerate the work of the Convention. In the absence of general agreements between the Centre and advisory bodies, it was agreed that it was desirable to clarify and define the respective roles, requirements, responsibilities and obligations by developing Memorandums of Understanding (PROTOCOLE) to achieve these objectives and ensure timely and effective cooperation in the annual allocation process. At the 20th session of the Office in June 1996, such declarations of intent were developed and invited to review the draft fee contracts for 1997 (UNESCO`s annual work contracts between the Centre and the advisory bodies of the Centre for the Implementation of Committee Decisions), in accordance with Article 14.2 of the Convention. Considering that existing international conventions, recommendations and resolutions concerning cultural and natural property show the importance of interest to all the peoples of the world, the guarantee of this unique and irreplaceable property, for all persons to whom it may belong, subject to the provisions of Article 13, paragraph 1, paragraph (c), and Article 23, international assistance under this Convention may only be granted to property belonging to the cultural and natural heritage that the World Heritage Committee has decided or may decide to list on one of the lists covered by paragraphs 2 and 4 of Article 11.
