The General Assembly of States Parties to the World Heritage Convention asks the Secretariat, in cooperation with the Chairperson of the World Heritage Committee, to initiate a process until the General Assembly in 2007, to discuss possible alternatives to the present election system to the World Heritage Committee. 

The alternative(s) presented to the General Assembly in 2007 should ensure balanced geographical and cultural representation in the Committee, a less time-consuming and less complicated voting system, and better focus on important issues in the proceedings of the General Assembly.
