Committee Decisions


Inscription: Banc d'Arguin National Park (Mauritania)

Banc d'Arguin National Park



The Committee decided that this property should be inscribed excluding the Cap Blanc Satellite Reserve which could only be considered once the boundary question was resolved and the Côte des Phoques parts could be included. The Committee recommended that the Mauritanian authorities adopt the recommendations of the 1989 FAO report on the protective legislation of the Park, and that a technical co-operation request be elaborated for an integrated development project for the local people dependent on the ocean resources.
