Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 1992

The Committee may recall that the repair of barrages and gates regulating water flow into this wetland area was financed by the World Heritage Fund in 1988. The Senegalese authorities, by their letter of 25 August 1992, have informed the World Heritage Centre that the parallel wooden planks, held together by clay, which keep the gates dry and resistant to water-leaks and seepage to and from the Djoudj River, have been found to be defective, and have requested assistance for the purchase of wood for replacing the existing ones at an estimated total cost of about US$ 10,000. The proposal is being submitted to the consideration of the Chairman of the World Heritage Committee for approval.
