Mauritius: The first recommendations around the site of le Morne made public




The sketch of the new management plan of the site of le Morne located in the South-West of Mauritius and classified at the world heritage of UNESCO have been made public at the end of last week.
                        
Accessibility to the mountain of le Morne, the management of the lagoon and the economic development of the community living in the periphery of this site' have been identified as strategic lines of work for the period 2014-2019.
 
 The first recommendations of experts working for the Morne Heritage Trust Fund will be submitted soon to the Council of Ministers before being communicated to UNESCO in late February, as indicated in the newspaper L'Express of Mauritius.
 
"We want to make sure that the hotels, kite surfing lovers and fishing can coexist. This will not be an easy task, but it must be done. I wish Le Morne can be beneficial not only to residents but to the whole Mauritius, "said the South African consultant, François Odendaal.
 
As a reminder, the mountain of le Morne Brabant (556 m) has been a high place of runaways in Mauritius during the period of slavery, abolished in 1835 on the island.
 
 Classified since July 2008 as heritage world UNESCO site of le Morne drains in its wake a collective memory that the Mauritian Government wished to preserve from oblivion, through a foundation created in 2004, the Morne Heritage Trust Fund.
