Current conservation issues
IUCN received a copy of the invitation from the State Party, dated 13th February 2004 to carry out a monitoring mission to the property. The World Heritage Centre and IUCN noted that the mission to Côte d’Ivoire did not occur due to the armed conflict in that country. In March 2004 the World Heritage Centre and IUCN received a report quoting the Office of the Coordinator of Safety measures of the United Nations (UNSECOORD), New York, advising that all non-essential travel to Côte d'Ivoire should be avoided with immediate effect. The World Heritage Centre and IUCN were informed that the situation will be kept under review and that agencies will be advised accordingly.
The World Heritage Centre and IUCN received the State Party report dated 29 March 2004. However, this report provides little new information compared to that provided in the previous report in 2003. The World Heritage Centre and IUCN therefore could not provide an adequate assessment for the state of conservation of the property and noted that a mission to the property should take place as soon as security conditions allow.
