Decision 41 COM 7A.27
Coro and its Port (Venezuela, Bolivarian Republic of) (C 658)

Decision: 41 COM 7A.27

The World Heritage Committee,

  1. Having examined Document WHC/17/41.COM/7A,
  2. Recalling Decision 40 COM 7A.5, adopted at its 40th session (Istanbul/UNESCO, 2016),
  3. Appreciates the continued efforts by the State Party in implementing the corrective measures adopted in Decision 38 COM 7A.23, and recognizes the steady progress in conservation and management of both public and private structures within the property;
  4. Also appreciates the inclusion of Community Councils and the two communities at large as integral participants in the property’s conservation and management efforts, and commends the State Party on its initiatives for capacity building and transmission of traditional know-how for the sustainable development and use of the property;
  5. Notes that the State Party requires additional time for the implementation of the corrective measures, as updated in Decision 39 COM 7A.48, and therefore requests the establishment of a new detailed timeframe for the implementation of the outstanding corrective measures;
  6. Also notes the preliminary proposal submitted by the State Party to redefine the property’s boundaries and buffer zones, and also requests the State Party to work with ICOMOS to consider options for the redefinition of the property’s boundaries as a matter of priority, considering its primacy for continued management and conservation efforts;
  7. Also urges the State Party to finalize and submit the property’s Management Plan, including the disaster risk management plan, taking into account the definition of the property’s boundaries;
  8. Recognizing the advancements in diagnosing and proposing potential solutions for the property’s drainage system, further urges the State Party to develop a prioritized and costed plan to begin the implementation of these solutions;
  9. Further requests the State Party to provide, as noted in the recommendations of the 2015 ICOMOS Advisory mission report, clear and comprehensive information on the progress towards the full implementation of the entire set of corrective measures;
  10. Considers that once the State Party has resolved the boundary definition process, and has demonstrated significant progress in implementing the Management Plan and an adequate drainage system, an assessment could then be made to determine whether the Desired state of conservation for the removal of the property from the List of World Heritage in Danger (DSOCR) has been reached;
  11. Requests furthermore the State Party to submit to the World Heritage Centre, by 1 February 2018, an updated report on the state of conservation of the property and the implementation of the above, for examination by the World Heritage Committee at its 42nd session in 2018;
  12. Decides to retain Coro and its Port (Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of)) on the List of World Heritage in Danger.
