Information presented to the Bureau of the World Heritage Committee in 2001

Previous deliberations:
Twenty-fourth session of the Committee (paragraph VIII.39; Annex X page 130).

Main Issues: Lack of a Management Plan and deterioration of the condition of the site.

New information: The World Heritage Centre received a brief report from the State Party, which indicates that the national authorities are revising the international assistance request first submitted in February 2000. The report neither makes reference to the Project of Archaeological Investigation that was initiated in co-ordination with the Management Plan Commission in August 2000, as reported to the twenty-fourth extraordinary session of the Bureau, nor was information supplied on the effort to secure extra-budgetary funding for works on the site.

Action Required

The Bureau notes with concern the very slow progress being made in the elaboration of a Master Plan for the site. It stresses the importance of having a plan to ensure coordination of any type of intervention or protective measure. The Bureau encourages the national authorities to formulate clear objectives for the future protection of the site and elaborate them into a detailed Master Plan at the earliest possible date. Furthermore it suggests to formulate the international assistance request that is currently being revised in such a manner that it concentrates on the activities most needed to initiate this process. The Bureau requests a report concerning the advances made to be submitted by 15 September 2001 for examination by the Bureau at its twenty-fourth extraordinary session.

Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 2001

At the time of the preparation of this document, the World Heritage Centre had not received the report requested by the Bureau at its twenty-fifth session. There is no further information concerning the international assistance request for the site as, since February 2000, the State Party is reviewing the request.
