Of course it is sad, but not delisting this site would have sent a wholly wrong message to similar cases. National, regional and local governments have to understand that being in the WHS relates to holding the highest standards and that any development (either in the buffer or core zone) will have to be assessed in detail and -after that assessment- found not to be detrimental to the site's OUV.
I only wish the same is applied next year to Selous (even if they averted it this time), just as the WHC had the obbligation to be more firm to Shahrisabz in last years and didn't. The same standard has to apply to "developed" and "developing" countries.
Brazil opposes (again). Nepal is doing its best and just needs more help. Danger listing would be negative for tourism.
I really don't get the mindset that a In Danger listing has to be avoided at all costs. It should have come right the first session after the earthquake.
Salonga NP removed from the In Danger list!
For a country that has had all its 5 WHS in the In Danger List for over 20 years, it's great news. I hope the measures they have taken there get more and more effective with time.
Lastly, thanks to all who have being posting the updates of this year's extended session.
