A.2 Requests for which the Bureau formulated a recommendation to the Committee
A.2.1 Technical co-operation
A.2.1.4 Komodo National Park (Indonesia)
The Bureau reviewed a request for US$49,500 for Komodo National Park and recommended that the Committee approve US$37,000, deleting a proposal for staff training. It was noted that the Park authorities are planning to set up a training programme which would be a duplication of this activity. The project, prepared in cooperation with UNESCO's ROSTSEA Office, has three objectives: to provide equipment, to carry out a study on population in local villages and to improve the capability with respect to protection and monitoring of marine resources.
