    3. includes a strategy to establish a detailed botanical inventory of the site, to identify all important refugia and areas for relict flora that may further justify the application of criterion (ix);
  5. Recommends the State Party to extend the northern boundaries of the property to include all attributes of Outstanding Universal Value including the rock art sites;
  6. Also recommends the State Party to give consideration to the following:
    1. preparing and submitting cartographic documentation and mapping, with the assistance of the research institutions that have been and are currently working in the region, at an adequate scale, of the sites so far inventoried, in order to have a baseline for protection, conservation and management purposes,
    2. strengthening and diversifying waste management according to the waste types in the revised management plan,
    3. continuing training and sensitization of local communities,
    4. establishing capacity building strategies and training programmes in order to prepare the future managers of the property from within the members of the local communities,
    5. incorporating in the revised management plan a Heritage Impact Assessment approach into the management system, so as to ensure that any programme, project or legislation regarding the property be assessed in terms of its consequences on the Outstanding Universal Value and its supporting attributes;
  7. Thanks the State Party for its commitment not to develop oil exploitation programme in areas within the property and the buffer zone;
  8. Requests furthermore the State Party to submit to the World Heritage Centre, by 1 December 2017, a report on implementation of the above-mentioned recommendations, for examination by the World Heritage Committee at its 42nd session in 2018.
