A.1 Requests on which the Bureau took a decision

A.1.1 Preparatory assistance

A.1.1.1 Réserve naturelle de Faune à Okapi de l'Ituri (Zaire)

The Bureau took note of the preparatory assistance request by Zaire being reduced from US$15,000 to US$10,000.

Further, following the advice of a WWF project at the site, the Bureau decided to further reduce this sum to US$ 3,000. It was noted that the current level of legal protection was inadequate and the site should be upgraded to National Parks legislation prior to an eventual nomination.
