Current conservation issues
The Bureau, at its twenty-first ordinary session held in June 1997, had requested the Park management to submit, before 15 September 1997, a map showing the proposed modification of the Park's boundaries to excise a 40 ha area around the village of Zabljak; this proposed modification had already been approved by the Government of the Republic of Montenegro. Furthermore, the Bureau sought clarification from the Park authorities on whether they considered that an engineering evaluation of the earthen containment structures in the flood plains of the Tara River was needed. In addition, the Bureau expressed its concerns regarding plans for tapping the hydropower potential of the Tara River and suggested that more information on such plans be submitted to the Committee session in December 1997. The response of the Park authorities to all the requests of the Bureau, outlined above, is awaited.
Analysis and Conclusion
The Bureau may wish to examine information that may be available at the time of its session and take appropriate action thereupon.
