In accordance with
the provisions of this convention and of the guidelines for its implementation,
Cambodia is required to:
- Abide by its commitment to
protect the Angkor site which is permanently inscribed on the World Heritage

every means and resource to ensure the application of legislation for protection
of the site and of the selected zones defined as part of the project for
the Zoning and Environmental Management Plan (ZEMP).
- Define a plan to manage the
protected site and its close environs in line with the recommendations of
UNESCO and the World Heritage Committee.
- Ensure from time to time -
if necessary using bilateral, multilateral or international cooperation
for that purpose - that the features which led to the inscription of Angkor
on the World Heritage List retain their novelty.
- Inform the World Heritage
Committee whenever necessary of any danger of deterioration on the site.
- Ensure constant monitoring,
using whatever means and resources are available, of the state of the site
