The World Heritage Committee,

1. Having examined Document WHC-08/32.COM/7B,

2. Recalling Decision 31 COM 7A.12, adopted at its 31st session (Christchurch, 2007),

3. Acknowleges the extensive on-going efforts of the Everglades National Park and the considerable funding of the State Party to protect and restore the property;

4. Encourages the State Party to continue providing sufficient funding to ensure the corrective measures are implemented as effectively and as quickly as possible;

5. Also encourages the State Party to conduct a vulnerability assessment and develop a risk reduction strategy for climate change, including effective solutions to restoring the water flow and functioning of the Everglades ecosystem that will allow it to adapt to projected sea-level rise;

6. Notes that previous state of conservation reports have not provided data and information on the status of many of the values for which the property was inscribed;

7. Requests the State Party to submit to the World Heritage Centre, by 1 February 2010, a detailed state of conservation report, including information on species and ecosystems, and progress in implementing the corrective measures and achieving the desired state of conservation, for examination by the World Heritage Committee at its 34th session in 2010.
