Certainly not wrong if Thailand gets some more pressure to set the right priorities.
What exactly does the IUCN believe is lacking?
I can make my own list with complaints, haha but I am wondering what they think.
And does anyone know approximately how much financial support comes with the status of a World Heritage site?

Seems that Thailand successfully convinced the WHC to NOT put DPYKY on the "in danger list" as per the IUCN recommendation, arguing that real progress had already been made on some of the issues and that more progress was to come.

The sessions are being broadcast live at whc.unesco.org/en/sessions/40COM/ and

Kaeng Krachan will be heard late this afternoon/early evening (Thai time Friday 15th July) (ADD - which probably might not happen now as theres an attempted coup in Turkey where the meeting is taking place)
