Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 1985

[Oral report]

The Tanzanian authorities had organised a commission of enquiry into the management of this property but as yet the conclusion had not yet been made known. However, with the financial support of NORAD (Norway), a major technical workshop was being held in December 1985 to study improving the management of this property. 

 

Analysis and Conclusions of the World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies

IUCN considered that this progress was positive and indicated that Ngorongoro could perhaps be removed from the List of World Heritage in Danger by 1987.
