Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 1986
An IUCN mission visited the NCA 21-24 April to meet with the Acting Conservator, to review conditions and to assist in formulating a request for technical assistance.
Conditions were still much the same as described at the 7th and 8th Committee meetings with severe shortages of equipment and supplies necessary for effective management. A key immediate need is vehicles for patrol and administration.
Two project requests were prepared and submitted to the World Heritage Secretariat by the Unesco representative for Tanzania, and approved for immediate implementation. Further assistance in the order of several million dollars is being sought from NORAD as a result of the December IUCN workshop.
If a portion of this is obtained, IUCN would recommend removal of the site from the Danger List.
Analysis and Conclusions of the World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies
Decision Adopted: 10COM IX.A.14-15
14. As in previous years, IUCN reported on the conservation of natural properties inscribed on the World Heritage List and the List of World Heritage in Danger. An information document (CC-86/CONF.003/INF.4) prepared by IUCN presented up-to-date information on some 16 natural properties.
15. The Committee was glad to learn of improvements or of a stabilisation in the previously deteriorating situation of certain properties, notably Djoudj National Park (Senegal), Ngorongoro Conservation area (Tanzania) and Garamba National Park (Zaire) (all inscribed on the List of World Heritage in Danger). Improvements were also noted for the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park (Australia), Pirin National Park (Bulgaria), Manas Tiger Reserve (India), Niokolo Koba National Park (Senegal) and Aldabra Atoll (Seychelles). The Committee requested IUCN to keep it informed of the conservation status of Iguazu and Los Glaciares National Parks (Argentina), Mt. Nimba (Guinea/Côte d'Ivoire) and Ichkeul National Park (Tunisia).
