Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 2013

The State Party submitted a report on 15 April 2013 that includes information about actions carried out in response to the decisions made by the World Heritage Committee.

The Retrospective Statement of Outstanding Universal Value has been completed by the State Party. However, the State Party has not submitted the Desired state of conservation and the corrective measures for the removal of the property from the List of World Heritage in Danger, as was requested by the World Heritage Committee.

Following the recommendations of the 2011 reactive monitoring mission, the State Party reports on the finalization of the database for the register of cultural heritage in Venezuela (RPC-Venezuela). This database is now publicly available on the internet and includes inventories and information about cultural properties in the country inscribed in the World Heritage List.

a)   Conservation measures

The State Party reports that the Management Committee established in 2011 set out a series of measures for the property. Consolidation and restoration works were carried out by the Community Councils of Coro and La Vela, with technical and administrative support from the Institute of Cultural Heritage. Fifty traditional houses were restored and it is expected that four more restorations will be concluded by the second quarter of 2013. In addition, the government of the State of Falcon purchased three historic houses and completed their restoration and adaptation. Both Casa de las Ventanas and Casa del Tesoro will function as museums, while the future function of the Casa del Sol has yet to be established. However, no detailed information is provided on the museographic interventions to adapt the building. Other interventions are also being carried out at other historic constructions, such as the Convent of San Francisco and Casa Lugo, and minor preventive maintenance at churches.

Conservation interventions have been funded with resources allocated by the Presidency of the Republic and implemented with multidisciplinary participation. Works have also sought to preserve and enhance traditional building techniques and craftsmanship, as well as capacity transfer to new generations. In this respect, it is worth underscoring that the Workshop School of Coro has been maintained, as a joint effort between the Municipality of Miranda and the Spanish Cooperation Agency for International Development.

b)   Legislative framework and regulatory measures

The State Party notes that legal measures continue to be implemented in accordance with the Law on protection and defence of cultural heritage. Ten legal proceedings were initiated in Coro and two in La Vela for infractions. It also reports that the Municipality of Miranda is currently developing a new Municipal Ordinance for the protection and care of built heritage, which will be subject to public consultation throughout 2013 prior to its approval; though no concrete information is provided on the measures planned in this new legal instrument.

The State Party further mentioned that the Institute of Cultural Heritage issued administrative ruling no. 029-12, which establishes norms and procedures for archaeological and paleontological activities and will also regulate research works in the national urban and non-urban protected areas. It is expected that this measure will enhance the protection of archaeological remains within the inscribed property and its buffer zone and related areas, such as the Taima Taima Paleontological Park.

c)   Management arrangements

The State Party reports that the Office for Strategic Projects and Design for the heritage areas of Coro, La Vela and their protected areas (OPEDAP) was created by administrative ruling no 018/12 in October 2012. According to the State Party, this office will organise and harmonise public, private and popular power actions aimed at ensuring the conservation of the architectural, structural and stylistic values of the heritage buildings and public spaces of the protected areas of Coro and La Vela. This office should serve as the management office for the property from the formal, legal and technical point of view.

The State Party reports that the office has already coordinated actions taken by the Government of the State of Falcon, by the Municipalities of Miranda and Colina, by Community Councils and by the community in general. The State Party also mentions that the office has provided assistance to civil society and public and private entities with regard to interventions at 67 buildings, and that it has held multi-stakeholder meetings that have resulted in the creation of a network of heritage ensembles to undertake comprehensive actions for the protection of built heritage. However, detailed information on the coordinative competences of the office has not been provided, nor has it been provided on its participative structures.

Moreover, no Management Plan has been submitted by the State Party to the World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies, as it was requested by the World Heritage Committee. It is expected that OPEDAP, as a planning body, will define actions to be undertaken at the inscribed property and its buffer zone, as well as design guidelines for intervention, protection and enhancement of the protected areas, which should serve as the basis for the Management Plan.

d)   Boundaries and buffer zone

As requested by the World Heritage Committee, the geographical and cartographical information for the property and its buffer zones was submitted to the World Heritage Centre as part of the Retrospective Inventory for Latin America and the Caribbean.

e)   Planned interventions and other issues

As was requested by the World Heritage Committee, the State Party reports on other actions undertaken at the property, such as the updating of signage and interpretation, or dissemination and outreach actions to promote the tangible and intangible values of the property have also been undertaken, including publication and wide distribution of information materials, workshops, exhibits and presentations.

The development of project proposal for large scale drainage works for the Municipalities of Miranda and Colina, as well as the proposal for road works and restriction of vehicular traffic at the Zamora Street, have also been reported by the State Party. These interventions are planned within the framework of the recommendations of the 2011 reactive monitoring mission, though no precise technical or legal information is provided on the actual intervention projects.

The State Party additionally informs on the reopening of the Airport of Coro as a way of developing the touristic attractiveness of the property, but no detailed information is provided on the impact of this infrastructure. 

Analysis and Conclusion by World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies in 2013

The World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies take note of the actions implemented by the State Party to address the conditions that warranted the inscription of the property on the List of World Heritage in Danger. Although some activities faced challenges identified by the Committee in previous years, the precise functioning of new legal and technical managerial instruments needs to be ensured.  The World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies are of the view that the official establishment of a management office for the property is an essential step in ensuring the implementation of systematic and coherent course of action and that the formulation and approval of the Management Plan should be undertaken as a priority measure.

Moreover, detailed technical information should be provided by the State Party on the museographic aspects of the conservation of built heritage, as well as on planned interventions for the drainage system and for the restrictions of vehicular traffic at Zamora Street.

The World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies also underscore the importance of continuing efforts with regard to capacity building and transfer of knowledge on earthen architecture construction and conservation, as these will ensure the long term sustainability of the property.
