Decision 45 COM 7B.194
Centennial Hall in Wrocław (Poland) (C 1165)

The World Heritage Committee,

  1. Having examined Document WHC/23/45.COM/7B.Add.2,
  2. Recalling Decision 36 COM 7B.80 adopted at its 36th session (Saint Petersburg, 2012),
  3. Takes note of the establishment of the Team for Monitoring the Preparation of Management Plans for World Heritage properties in Poland and requests the State Party to provide information on the progress made in updating the 2016 Management Plan for the property;
  4. Notes with concern that the State Party did not comply with the requirements of paragraph 172 of the Operational Guidelines and has not provided to the World Heritage Centre timely information about large-scale projects which have now been completed or are in an advanced stage of development that may have the potential to negatively impact on the Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) of the property;
  5. Regrets that the State Party did not harness the opportunity for a constructive dialogue with the World Heritage Centre and ICOMOS over the years to improve planned projects and reduce or mitigate potential impacts when there was still room for improvement;
  6. Reiterates its request to the State Party to provide an overall Development Plan for the property and its buffer zone that provides an understanding as to how all implemented and planned projects support the OUV of the property, and further requests that this plan be integrated into the updated Management Plan;
  7. Further requests the State Party to invite a joint World Heritage Centre/ICOMOS Reactive Monitoring mission to assess the impacts of all completed and ongoing projects in the property, its buffer zone and wider setting on the attributes of its OUV, examine planned projects that may have an impact on the property and assess its overall state of conservation;
  8. Requests the State Party to submit to the World Heritage Centre, by 1 February 2024, 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 46th session.
