Decision CONF 015 VIII.20
Nominations to the World Heritage List (inscribed sites)

The Committee decided to enter in the World Heritage List the twenty-four cultural and natural properties which had been recommended by the Bureau:

Name of PropertyContracting State having submitted the nomination of the property in accordance with the ConventionIdentification No.
  •  Tassili n'Ajjer 
Algeria  179
  •  The M'Zab Valley
Algeria  188
  •  Djemila 
Algeria  191
  •  Tipasa
Algeria  193
  •  Timgad
Algeria  194
  •  Western Tasmania Wilderness National Parks

The Committee is seriously concerned at the likely effect of dam construction in the area on those natural and cultural characteristics which make the property of outstanding universal value. In particular, it considers that flooding of parts of the river valleys would destroy a number of cultural and natural features of great significance, as identified in the ICOMOS and IUCN reports. The Committee therefore recommends that the Australian authorities take all possible measures to protect the integrity of the property. The Committee suggests that the Australian authorities should ask the Committee to place the property on the List of World Heritage in Danger until the question of dam construction is resolved.

Australia  181
  •  Lord Howe Island Group

In view of the importance of Lord Howe Island as a World Heritage site, the World Heritage Committee suggests that steps be taken to replace the telecommunications towers as soon as satellite communications are available.
