With a view to enhancing the capacity of the Indonesian national and local authorities to improve the state of conservation at Borobudur Temple Compound World Heritage property, the World Heritage Centre developed a technical cooperation project under the Netherlands Funds-In-Trust with UNESCO.

The project aims to enhance the management effectiveness at Borobudur Temple Compound World Heritage property and to provide technical assistance to the Indonesian authorities in the process for the review and revision of the Presidential Decree, the current zoning system as well as land-use regulations within and around the World Heritage area.

A UNESCO and ICCROM technical assistance mission to Indonesia will take place from 25 October to 2 November 2008 within the framework of this project.

The mission aims to assist the Indonesian authorities in the implementation of the recommendations made by the World Heritage Committee over the past years concerning the state of conservation of this World Heritage property, in consultation with all stakeholders. In particular, the mission will try to assist Indonesia’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism in developing an Action Plan for improving the management system, including institutional and legal framework, for the protection of Borobudur Temple and its surrounding area, along with the recommendations from a joint World Heritage Centre/ICOMOS Reactive Monitoring Mission of February 2006.

Meanwhile, mission members will participate in an on-site Training Workshop on the Management of World Heritage Properties in Indonesia to bring together national and local officials responsible for the management of this World Heritage property as well as experts and other concerned stakeholders.
