The Terms of Reference for the Board were agreed at the first meeting in May 2015; these will focus on the overall strategic direction of policy and priorities in the World Heritage Site. The Board is responsible for the review of the Management Plan itself, for the progress in the various Actions highlighted in the Plan, and for periodic reporting to UNESCO. Any changes in the Plan must be agreed, documented and communicated by the Board. The Board will receive regular reports from the Delivery Groups. PDF iconPartnership Board ToR
