The UNESCO Office for the Pacific States and the Pacific SIDS and the Pacific Heritage Hub are working with the Pacific Small Island Developing States to document their immovable cultural heritage including the states which do not yet have cultural heritage registers (all Pacific SIDS except Palau, Fiji and Samoa). It may be possible to assist UNESCO and PHH in collating national lists for the countries which do not have them yet.
