Amami-Oshima Island, Tokunoshima Island,
the northern part of Okinawa Island, and Iriomote Island

Meetings

Regional Liaison Committee

Amami-Oshima Island, Tokunoshima Island, the northern part of Okinawa Island, and Iriomote Island extend across many administrative areas containing 12 municipalities within two prefectures. All the islands are inhabited, and many people reside and live around the nominated property. As the environment in which the threatened and endemic species representing heritage value occur is situated adjacent to, or in some cases overlaps the locations where the residents live and industrial activities take place, coordination with the lives of residents and industry is imperative; in other words, the nominated property cannot be properly managed without understanding and cooperation from the residents.

Accordingly, a Regional Liaison Committee on Natural World Heritage Nominated Property (Regional Liaison Committee), composed of administrative organs, as well as four sub-local meetings, under the Regional Liaison Committee, composed of administrative organs, local governments, concerned bodies and NPOs, are established so that the nominated property can be conserved and managed with mutual role-sharing and cooperation in place.
