5 COM XII.35 Technical co-operation requests 35. The Committee decided to substantially increase the funds allocated to training activities, considering the shortage of qualified personnel as noted in many countries.

On this subject the representative of the Director-General indicated that a large-scale world training programme at both the regional and national levels for specialists in the conservation of cultural property could be envisaged within the framework of UNESCO, of the Convention and of ICCROM. This latter organization would be willing to participate in a programme of this type. The Committee gave its support to such a project, which was viewed as being particularly desirable for consolidating national infrastructures including those concerned with training.

(...)

The World Heritage Committee, for its part, will give priority to the training - preferably on-the-spot - of specialists (rangers, managers, scientists) so as to meet more effectively those needs most urgently felt in regard to the management and protection of sites inscribed on the World Heritage List.

The Committee requested that information be made available on regional and national training courses in the conservation of the cultural and natural heritage for which assistance was requested under the Convention.

8 BUR VI..30 Requests for technical co-operation 30. The Secretariat presented the requests for technical cooperation which had been received by the 1st March 1984 deadline for properties inscribed on the World Heritage List or had been recommended by the Bureau for inscription thereon at its present session.

It was noted that the total of the amounts requested for technical cooperation and of their training components were two to three times greater than the expected budgetary provisions. It was therefore necessary to contact the States Parties concerned to request them to reduce their requests to a more modest amount and to indicated their priority needs.

The Bureau also recognised that it would be impossible to meet all requests adequately. In this connection, the Bureau recalled that the Committee had already drawn up an order of priorities for the granting of international assistance, which was presented in paragraph 80 of the Operational Guidelines (WHC/2 Revised, January 1984). Priority was given particularly to emergency measures to save World Heritage properties and to projects which are likely to have a "multiplier effect". The Bureau recognised the need for equitably distributing the modest World Heritage Fund and recommended that the Committee also favourably consider requests from countries which had not yet benefited from international assistance under the Fund.

8 BUR VI..31 Requests for technical co-operation 31. The Bureau regretted the decrease in the amounts of the World Heritage Fund which limited its impact, particularly in the field. This would decrease the visibility of the Convention and thereby the support from those involved in the protection of the World Heritage properties themselves.

In this connection, the Bureau encouraged the Secretariat, in cooperation with ICOMOS and IUCN, to seek where possible other sources of funding to synergetically support World Heritage technical cooperation projects.

As regards training, the Bureau recommended that maximum use be made of the fellowship programmes and training facilities offered by many States Parties.

8 COM XII.35-36 Requests for Technical Co-operation 35. The Committee took note that although such financial support appeared very modest in relation to the projects concerned, the World Heritage Fund should essentially play a catalytic role in assisting States Parties to procure the necessary funds to safeguard World Heritage properties. The World Heritage Fund should not be used for subventions of activities which normally should be supported at-the national level, e.g. to cover the salaries of the personnel ensuring the protection of World Heritage properties or to cover the costs of long-term training programmes. It rather should be used for specific, limited projects and to help the State Party concerned to more easily seek other sources of funds, including under bilateral cooperation agreements.

36. In this connection, the Committee requested the Secretariat, in consultation with ICOMOS and IUCN, to draw up a set of guidelines for technical cooperation and training requests, which should be relevant to the protection of properties on the World Heritage List and which should help States Parties to prepare their technical cooperation requests on the basis of established rules.

8 COM XII.34 Requests for Technical Co-operation 34. The Committee noted that the total of the sums requested for technical cooperation greatly exceeded the allocation of $200,000 which the Committee had approved for technical cooperation in 1985.

The Committee decided, therefore, that for this year technical cooperation projects should not exceed $20,000 each, and that no individual decisions would be taken on these requests before their further study and evaluation.

The Committee asked the Secretariat to further consult with the countries concerned and with ICOMOS and IUCN as appropriate and to submit these requests directly to the Chairman of the Committee who, in accordance with paragraph 71 of the Operational Guidelines, had the authority to approve technical cooperation requests up to an amount of $20,000. The Secretariat would then report on the Chairman's decisions at the ninth session of the Bureau in 1985.
