I. CONSERVATION AND RESEARCH
Sustainable safeguarding of the Angkor site requires a proper management tool. The ICC finds that the proposals put forward in this connection by the Representative of the World Heritage Center are most fitting and lends its full support to this initiative. The recommendation is therefore made to draw up a management plan in keeping with the Operational Guidelines for the Implementation of the World Heritage Convention. The APSARA National Authority is now desirous of having such a plan, which must include among other things a general methodological framework for conservation, restoration and maintenance operations on the monuments. From this standpoint, the ICC is appealing to donors (governments, public or private institutions, individual benefactors) to provide technical and/or financial support for preparation of the management plan, as a matter of priority.
