Bali’s ‘subak’ farms to be named UNESCO World Heritage Site

The traditional subak farming and irrigation system of Bali will be recognized by UNESCO on its list of World Heritage Sites.

UNESCO’s decision to include subak on its list of items of cultural or natural importance to the common heritage of humanity is expected to be formalized at the organization’s next meeting in 
Saint Petersburg, Russia, in June. Four sites were proposed by the Indonesian government for inclusion on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites: the Batukaru mountain reserve in Tabanan, the 
Pakerisan watershed in Gianyar, the Taman Ayun royal palace in Badung and Lake Batur in Bangli.
