UNESCO inspects West Lake protection

A delegation led by Francesco Bandarin (Italy), Director of UNESCOs World Heritage Centre, inspected the management and protection at the World Heritage site West Lake on July 29.

Bandarin was briefed about the West Lake Culture Protection & Monitoring Center and the five systems that protect and monitor the culture and landscape, namely, camera monitoring, climate monitoring, flood forecast, tourist number monitoring and forest fire prevention monitoring.

After the visit to the center, Bandarin met with Liu Ying, head of the Administration Committee of West Lake Scenic Area.

Bandarin was pleased to see the scientific, thorough monitoring and protection systems for West Lake as a World Heritage site. He noted that the Administration has made great efforts and accumulated experience in World Heritage site monitoring and protection. Bandarin viewed West Lake as a great example for World Heritage site protection and would like to live in Hangzhou as he loves the city very much.

Liu expressed his gratitude towards the UNESCOs consistent support, especially the instruction on World Heritage site monitoring and protection. The city has planned to file applications for its Liangzhu Relics and South Song Museum to be included in the World Heritage List, and expected more guidance, help and support from the UNESCO. Liu welcomed Bandarin to visit the city often.
