unesco-logoIn order to assess the state of conservation of the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu in Peru,  a UNESCO joint mission will visit Peru’s Southern Cusco region on February 22-25. This is part of UNESCO’s Reactive Monitoring process for World Heritage List properties.

The visit follows on the 2015 World Heritage Committee meeting in Bonn (Germany) which took place in January 2016 and included expert advice for local and national authorities regarding compliance with the World Heritage Committee recommendations.

On that occasion, the Committee deemed necessary to carry out an advisory and a reactive monitoring mission in Machu Picchu as part of its technical assistance to the Inca nation.

The delegation will be composed of experts from the World Heritage Centre’s Advisory Bodies: International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) and International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS).

The recent one is is aimed at producing a detailed report with corresponding recommendations for consideration by the said committee which will then re-examine Machu Picchu’s conservation state during its next meeting, scheduled for July 2017 in Krakow (Poland).

The Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1983. Its outstanding universal value lies in its exquisite architectural, engineering and landscape planning.
