Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 1997

The Committee at its twentieth session requested the State Party to submit, by 15 September 1997, an overall state of conservation report, so the Committee may consider whether Dubrovnik could be deleted from the List of World Heritage in Danger.

At the date of preparation of this document no report had been received by the Secretariat.

Decision Adopted: 21 COM VII.B.26

VII.26 Old City of Dubrovnik (Croatia)

The Delegate of Croatia informed the Committee that considerable progress had been made in the reconstruction and restoration of Dubrovnik and that an expert committee will meet in January 1998 to review the state of conservation of the city and that the Croatian authorities will inform the Bureau and the Committee of its findings.

The Committee decided to defer the examination of the state of conservation of Dubrovnik and requested the Croatian authorities to submit a report on the state of conservation by 15 April 1998 for examination by the twenty-second session of the Bureau.
