Decision 44 COM 7B.134
Rabat, Modern Capital and Historic City: a Shared Heritage (Morocco) (C 1401)

The World Heritage Committee,

  1. Having examined Document WHC/21/44.COM/7B.Add,
  2. Recalling Decision 43 COM 7B.44 adopted at its 43rd session (Baku, 2019),
  3. Expresses its appreciation for the efforts undertaken by the State Party in addressing its previous recommendations, and the recommendations of the 2018 joint World Heritage Centre/ICOMOS/ICCROM Advisory mission, particularly with regard to providing full details of ongoing and planned major restoration and development projects with related Heritage Impact Assessment (HIA) studies;
  4. Welcomes the Technical Workshop that was held to provide training and capacity reinforcement on tools and guidance for implementing the Historic Urban Landscape approach and the elaboration of HIAs;
  5. Notes the measures taken to minimise the impact of the Mohammed VI Tower as recommended by the 2018 mission, and acknowledges that these have delivered some benefits, although not sufficient to mitigate the overall scale and context of this development;
  6. Considers that solutions proposed for the interface between the extension of the Rabat-Ville Railway Station and the historic wall are the most appropriate in architectural and technical terms, and notes that details of the project to restore the original station building will be submitted to the World Heritage Centre, for review by the Advisory Bodies;
  7. Also acknowledges that enhanced processes are needed for future development and conservation projects to minimise potential impacts, and also welcomes the steps taken so far, such as the integration of the Management Plan into the Spatial Development Plan, and the workshop held on HIAs;
  8. Encourages the State Party to continue the ongoing exchange and dialogue established with the World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies, and requests it to continue to submit information on ongoing and planned projects which may affect the Outstanding Universal Value of the property, in line with Paragraph 172 of the Operational Guidelines;
  9. Notes with appreciation the invitation from the State Party for the requested World Heritage Centre/ICOMOS Advisory mission to the property, scheduled to be carried out in March/April 2021, but postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and recommends that this mission be carried out as soon as circumstances permit;
  10. Also requests the State Party to submit to the World Heritage Centre, by 1 February 2022, 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 45th session.
