Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 2014

The State Party submitted a state of conservation report on 30 January 2014, which is available at https://whc.unesco.org/en/list/711/documents. The State Party report details progress towards achieving the Desired state of conservation for the removal of the property from the List of World Heritage in Danger (DSOCR), as follows:

  • Direct communication between indigenous leaders and governmental representatives has further consolidated a shared understanding of the conditions of the Wounaan settlement of Juin Phu Buur located within the property. A promising framework is in place for cooperation aimed at simultaneously ensuring the maintenance of the Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) of the property and community needs and rights.
  • Surveillance and law enforcement to curb illegal logging, hunting and fishing has been further consolidated based on increased presence on the ground and inter-institutional agreements with the Armed Forces, as well as regional environmental authorities. A combination of research, regulations and agreements with communities is stated to be resulting in a reduction of fishing pressure.
  • There are no current proposals for mega projects overlapping with the property. However, Environmental and Social Impact Assessments are being conducted for a large electricity transmission corridor which would connect Colombia and Panama.
  • The security situation has significantly improved over the last years based on multiple activities, such as inter-ethnic dialogue and conflict resolution, removal of illicit crops and land mines, as part of the broader peace process.
  • The State Party has allocated additional resources to the property and also benefits from external project support.
  • Furthermore, the Draft Statement of OUV for the property has been submitted for adoption by the World Heritage Committee at its 38th session in 2014.
Analysis and Conclusion by World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies in 2014

There has been significant progress with the implementation of the corrective measures. There is a well-documented and promising basis to ensure a future of the indigenous settlement within the property, compatible with both community rights and World Heritage status. However, user agreements remain to be negotiated and are likely to remain an integral and potentially contentious element of the future management of the property. The ongoing process therefore is fully adequate and of major conceptual and practical interest to the World Heritage Convention.

While illegal activities are not fully under control, the increased governmental presence at the property has considerably reduced illegal logging. The efforts to better understand and regulate fishing in the Tumaradó swamps and the Atrato River are likewise encouraging. Even though catch by unit of effort is reported to indicate acceptable catch levels, further agreements remain to be negotiated and complied with in practice.

No major projects are currently planned within the property, however impacts on OUV, as understood in the Operational Guidelines, do not require physical location of a project within the property. The information on the electricity transmission corridor between Colombia and Panama provided by the State Party does not permit any conclusion on its potential impacts on the OUV of the property. The ongoing Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIA) conducted for this project should include an assessment of potential impacts on the OUV of the property, as well as the OUV of the adjacent Darien National Park in Panama, in line with IUCN’s World Heritage Advice Note on Environmental Assessment, and its results should be submitted for review by the World Heritage Centre and IUCN as soon as they are available.

The State Party has made important further progress with regaining control of critical parts of the property. The consolidation of management translates into a systematically growing compliance with the indicators set for the DSOCR. Funding and staffing levels have been increased and that additional support could be rallied through projects. While encouraging, this raises the question of the long term availability of adequate resources. It is recommended that the Committee request the State Party to make a clear commitment to the long term maintenance of the increased level of attention, funding and management in order to ensure that further progress in restoring and securing the OUV of the property can be maintained beyond the achievement of the DSOCR.

Recalling the recommendations of the 2011 reactive monitoring mission to the property, the State Party is encouraged to formalize a buffer zone for the inscribed property. Such a step would formally acknowledge that challenges and management responses to them cannot be strictly separated from the surroundings of the property, as recognized by the legal and policy framework in Colombia.

In view of the significant progress reported by the State Party towards achieving the DSOCR, it is recommended that the Committee request the State Party to invite an IUCN reactive monitoring mission to the property, in order to assess progress with achieving the indicators of the DSOCR and with the implementation of the corrective measures, with the possibility to make a recommendation regarding the possible removal of the property from the List of World Heritage in Danger at the Committee’s 39th session in 2015.
