World Heritage Outlook.

The IUCN World Heritage Outlook is the first assessment of all natural World Heritage sites. The organisation keep track of the condition of each site, having their status assessed and updated on the website for all to view. In order to improve the conservation outlook of each site, they identify all the needed actions to support the sites that are facing threats.

Lilo was approached to update the existing website (built on the Liferay open source CMS platform), and improve the usability of the natural site index. This index features heritage sites such as Henderson Island, which is supported by Sir David Attenborough.

What We Did

Lilo enhanced the World Heritage online reporting system for site assessments, by developing updated fields to reflect improved site assessment methodology.

The improved online reporting system includes the following new functionality:

  • Enable coordinators to launch new site assessment cycles
  • Give site assessors and reviewers the ability to access relevant documents for their site assessments
  • Allow reviewers to review and edit site assessment content
  • Enable coordinators to view consolidated reviewer edits for a site assessment
  • Incorporate updates to site assessment fields to reflect improved 2016 site assessment methodology
  • Allow site assessors and reviewers to submit/review site assessments in English, Spanish or French, as well as allow other users (e.g. coordinators) the ability to input other language translations of site assessments.

The existing IUCN World Heritage Outlook site was also analysed to remove bugs in order to reduce errors and improve site accessibility.
