Title
Reactive Monitoring Mission Report, Ancient City of Sigiriya, March 2001
Description
Following the invitation by the national authorities, the World Heritage Centre urgently organised a Reactive Monitoring Mission to the site in March 2001. The mission undertaken by the Deputy Director of the Centre together with an international airport planning engineer from the Aeroports de Paris (France) held detailed discussions and consultations with the national and military officials concerned. ICOMOS was invited to participate but was unable to do so due to the very short notice of the mission. However, ICOMOS Sri Lanka was involved.

During a mission to the Ancient City of Sigiriya in central Sri Lanka in 2001, the Deputy-Director of the Centre undertook a short visit to examine the state of conservation of the Old Town of Galle and its Fortifications.
