The Committee took note of the IUCN evaluation of the natural values of this property, which met natural criterion (iii) concerning "exceptional combinations of natural and cultural elements". The Committee nevertheless expressed concern that the condition for integrity of this property was not fully met and recommended that the Secretariat contact the Malian authorities to develop a technical cooperation project aiming at avoiding the adverse impact of tourism on the cultural and natural values and at ameliorating living conditions within the property.
