Decision 33 COM 7B.42
Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu (Peru) (C/N 274)

The World Heritage Committee,

1. Having examined Document WHC-09/33.COM/7B.Add,

2. Recalling Decision 32 COM 7B.44, adopted at its 32nd session (Quebec City, 2008),

3. Recognizes that there has been progress in the reactivation of the Management Unit, improvements to the visitor management system, the initiation of risk prevention plans, the cancellation of helicopter flights over the Sanctuary and outreach activities to enhance the management and presentation of the property and raise awareness of conservation;

4. Notes the limited progress in addressing governance issues in the implementation of effective measures to address risk and in the continued uncontrolled development at Machu Picchu Village, issues with congestion and visitor management, and the unplanned development at the western access and urges the State Party to ensure strengthening collaboration with the Municipality of Machu Picchu, with the municipalities within the buffer zone and with other stakeholders for the effective implementation of the urban development plan;

5. Decides not to continue to apply the Reinforced Monitoring Mechanism to the property;

6. Requests the State Party to implement the action plan recommended by the Reinforced monitoring mission of January 2009, and to determine the timetable for the completion of the emergency action plan, management assessment, regulatory measures and legal frameworks in coordination with the Advisory bodies and the remaining recommendations of the six previous reactive monitoring missions to the property, in particular:

a) Implementation of participatory and conflict resolution workshops commencing in 2009 to address community interests and demands, particularly in regard to access to the site, public use, urban development and planning, both inside the inscribed property and in the buffer zone so as to promote the shared responsibility in the management of the property and to improve governance at the site,

b) Submission by 1 February 2010 of a draft Statement of Outstanding Universal Value and desired state of conservation, through a participatory workshop in conjunction with the World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies,

c) Completion of an emergency action plan for risk reduction and disaster recovery at the Historic Sanctuary, supported by geodynamic and vulnerability studies, to respond to identified risks,

d) Implementation of a management effectiveness assessment of the work of the Management Unit, and agreement of a three-year plan to address the improvement of its effectiveness,

e) Establishment and implementation of regulatory measures for the western access to the Sanctuary and definition of public use regulations,

f) Harmonization of existing legal frameworks and regulatory measures and definition of strategies for efficient implementation,

g) Analysis of land tenure status and mapping of current uses to identify adequate measures to maintain the Outstanding Universal Value of the property;

7. Also requests the international community to work closely with the State Party, the World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies to provide additional technical and/or financial support to enhance the local and national capacity in order to allow the prompt and effective implementation of these measures;

8. Further requests the State Party to submit to the World Heritage Centre, by 1 February 2010, a detailed report on the state of conservation of the property and on the progress made in the implementation of the 2009-2010 actions foreseen within the action plan, as well as the recommendations established in the Reinforced monitoring mission report, and the recommendations of previous missions for examination by the World Heritage Committee at its 34th session in 2010.
