Decision 37 COM 7B.35
Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu (Peru) (C/N 274)

The World Heritage Committee,

1.  Having examined Document WHC-13/37.COM/7B.Add,

2.  Recalling Decisions 33 COM 7B.42, 34 COM 7B.42, 35 COM 7B.38 and 36 COM 7B.39 , adopted at its 33rd (Seville, 2009), 34th (Brasilia, 2010), 35th (UNESCO, 2011) and 36th (Saint-Petersburg, 2012) sessions respectively,

3.  Expresses its deep concern that no strong and decisive action has been taken to implement the Emergency Action Plan drawn up in 2009 or the Revised Action Plan developed by the Advisory Mission of 2012, as a means of addressing threats to the property that have been underscored for more than ten years and which have increased since 2009;

4.  Notes that the International Support Panel has not had a dynamic impact in terms of fostering action to address the acknowledged threats to the property and also n otes that the State Party did not submit a technical and financial proposal to continue supporting the collaboration with the International Support Panel;

5.  Considers that the long-standing threats to the property derived from increased public use, deficiencies in decision-making and governance mechanisms, uncontrolled development at Machu Picchu Village, among others, have not been comprehensively addressed and its effects have been further exacerbated;

6.  Urges the State Party to confirm, by 30 July 2013 , that the International Support Panel will assist national authorities in addressing, as a matter of urgency, all the unresolved issues, and requests that said confirmation includes an explicit course of action to implement the recommendations made in 2012 with a clear indication on the financial and technical resources available;

7.  Also requests the State Party, in line with the proposals made in the 2009 Emergency Action Plan, the recommendations of the 2012 advisory mission and previous decisions of the World Heritage Committee, to implement the following measures within the noted timeframe:

a)  Harmonize legislative frameworks and enforce regulatory measures and related sanctions for violations by 1 April 2014 ,

b)  Develop a comprehensive strategy for the Western access to the property by 1 April 2014 ,

c)  Undertake the Management effectiveness assessment to assist in the review and update of the Management Plan for the property by 1 April 2014 ,

d)  Finalize and adopt public use plan, in line with the provisions of the Management Plan for the property, including the definition of carrying capacity for the Historic Sanctuary and Machu Picchu village and the measures anticipated in respect to the visitation limits by 1 April 2014,

e)  Finalize risk reduction and disaster recovery plans, including all parts of the disaster risk cycle, not only the response to emergency situations, by 1 April 2014 ,

f)   Finalize and approve the Urban Plan for Machu Picchu Village, containing the definition of regulatory measures, including building codes and processes for approval of new construction in the village and adjacent areas at the property and its buffer zone by 1 April 2014 ;

8.  Also considers that if the absence of the implementation of the above-mentioned actions is noted by the Committee at its 39th session in 2015, the cumulative impacts of the identified and long-standing threats would irreversibly impact the property, which could lead to the consideration of the inscription of the property on the List of World Heritage in Danger by the Committee at its 39th session in 2015;

9.  Further requests the State Party to submit to the World Heritage Centre, by 1 February 2014 , an updated report on the state of conservation of the property and the implementation of the above and the final reports on the requested measures by 1 April 2014 , for examination by the World Heritage Committee at its 39th session in 2015.
