level of support at the international and national level to increase the rate of implementation in all recommendations, as set out in a the Action Plan. The establishment of an international support panel, as has been successfully implemented in other properties such as Angkor (Cambodia), is recommended to focus the international support that is required. The combination of the Presidential Decree at the national level, and more focused technical cooperation and support at the international level, should be centred on ensuring the political will and resources to address governance and sustainable finance issues, effective stakeholder involvement, implementation of the 2009 Action Plan, and steady resolution of the backlog of unaddressed management issues before the 35th session of the World Heritage Committee in 2011. In the absence of this essential progress, they suggest that it might be appropriate for the World Heritage Committee to consider inscription of the property on the List of World Heritage in Danger.
