Decisions adopted by the Committee in 1987
11 COM VIII.17
SOC: Djoudj National Park (Senegal), Ngorongoro Conservation Area (Tanzania) & Garamba National Park (Zaire)
17. The Committee noted with satisfaction that the situation in two of the natural sites inscribed on the List of World Heritage in Danger - namely Djoudj National Park (Senegal) and Ngorongoro Conservation Area (Tanzania) - had considerably improved in the last year and that IUCN would be proposing that they be removed from the List of World Heritage in Danger in the next two years. The situation of Garamba National Park (Zaire) was also improving but was still critical.
