105 / 206

The World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies remain concerned that, in the absence of new information in the State Party report, the property is still under continuing high levels of threat to its Outstanding Universal Value arising from highway construction plans, the continuing urbanization, and the lack of an effective management system, all identified in the 2009 mission. They believe that the need for a defined recovery programme is still crucial and that the State Party should be encouraged to invite the joint mission proposed by the world heritage comette center at its 33rd session as a matter of urgency.
