The IUCN World Heritage Outlook aims to bring together, through Outlook Partnerships, the key stakeholders who are committed to addressing conservation issues in World Heritage sites. The objective of IUCN's Outlook Partnerships is to take Outlook findings, which are the most comprehensive global assessment of natural World Heritage properties, and use these to catalyse action for improved protection of World Heritage sites.
