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. 

Analysis and Conclusions of the World Heritage Centre and IUCN


Decision Adopted: 26 COM 21B.15

The World Heritage Committee,

1. Notes that no decision regarding the possible extension of the Gunung Mulu World Heritage site to include the Gunung Buda National Park has been made;

2. Recommends that the Centre and IUCN continue to communicate with the State Party and raise the issue of the possible participation of indigenous people in the planning of the extension of the World Heritage site at the appropriate time in the future.
