Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 2002

The State Party informed the Centre, by letter of 30 January 2002, that the Gunung Buda National Park, which lies adjacent to the Gunung Mulu World Heritage site, was declared a National Park on 14 September 2000 and that at present there is no decision taken to enlarge the World Heritage site to include the Gunung Buda National Park. Therefore, the State Party has noted that the question of conducting negotiations with the indigenous people on this possible extension does not arise.
