The massive development programs in National Strategic Tourism Areas, especially at the Borobudur and Komodo National Park super-priority areas, has triggered the worst possible risk, namely the revocation of their world heritage status by UNESCO.

The World Heritage Committee (WHC) during its 44th session in Fuzhou, China, from July 15 to 31, urged the Indonesian government to postpone all development projects in and around the Borobudur Temple until after the completion of revisions to the Heritage Impact Assessment, the Management Plan for the Borobudur Temple Compound (MP), the Integrated Tourism Management Plan for Borobudur-Yogyakarta-Prambanan (IT-MP BYP) and the Borobudur Visitor Management Plan (BVMP).
