Fortifications on the Caribbean Side of Panama: Portobelo-San Lorenzo

Threats to the Site (2012)

Efforts continue to be inadequate to address the poor and fragile state of conservation of the property.

Despite the budget increase, the implementation of measures to address the conservation of the built fabric, urban expansion, encroachment and reforestation have remained in the planning stages for over ten years.

The Emergency Plan has only been partially developed and no precise indication on the expected timeframe for implementation has been provided.

There are still critical needs in terms of staffing and resources, as well as capacities to systematically implement conservation, management and protection actions for the property.
