Current conservation issues
As IUCN reported to the 12th meeting of the Committee, conditions here have substantially improved over the past few years when the "warning light" first went on in 1983.
Continued support and surveillance is required but the main threats are now under control.
On 2 March, a letter from the Ministry of Lands, Natural Resources and Tourism agreed that the area can now be removed from the Danger List.
The Bureau was glad to learn that, thanks in part to support provided under the World Heritage Fund, the situation of this site had greatly improved since it was inscribed on the List of World Heritage in Danger in 1983.
In the light of the IUCN report and the letter from the Ministry, the Bureau recommended that the Committee comply with the request of the Ministry to remove this property from the List of World Heritage in Danger.
Decision Adopted: 13BUR VI.15
15. The Bureau reviewed another request from Tanzania, for the purchase of equipment for protecting the archaeological and palaeontological site of Olduvai Gorge in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area of the United Republic of Tanzania.
The Bureau, however, deferred its recommendations on this request, since the site had been inscribed on the World Heritage List under natural criteria. The Bureau, though, suggested that ICOMOS and the Secretariat provide further information on the relevance of cultural values for the inscription of this site on the World Heritage List at the forthcoming meeting of the Bureau and, subsequently, at the session of the Committee.
The Bureau also considered the desiderability of revising the criteria under which certain properties have previously been included, in order to determine whether other cultural or natural criteria did not also apply.
Decision Adopted: 13COM XIII.38-39.C
38. The Committee noted that the Bureau had examined in detail the requests for international assistance presented in document SC-89/CONF.004/7. The Committee also took into consideration that the Bureau had incorporated additional information received by the Secretariat since the preparation of this document into its evaluations.
39. In accordance with the procedures for granting international assistance set out in the Operational Guidelines adopted by the Committee in December 1988, the Committee approved the following requests:
C. The Committee deferred the following requests for technical cooperation and requested that the State Parties revise their proposals providing additional information:
1. Ngorongoro Conservation Area (Tanzania)
