No. UNESCO has recognized port activity as the driving force and main value that led to and laid down the grounds of its World Heritage Declaration. This document indicates that “Valparaíso is an exceptional example of the early globalization stage from the late XIX century, until it became a leading merchant port for Pacific Ocean sea routes in South America”. Of interest is the fact that the port’s Nomination describes the process carried out by the State of Chile before UNESCO to nominate and subsequently ratify Valparaíso as a World Heritage Site, containing a description of the property and justification for inscription, its legal status and, specifically, point 4 of the Nomination describes the way and plan in which the Site will be administered and describes, amongst other issues, measures to protect the Site and its sources of funds. Section F describes the plans agreed and nationalized for the property, i.e. planning instruments, a project to improve traffic management in the Valparaíso plan and a plan for the coastline's urban transformation; the latter defines coastline zoning, expressly establishing limits in Zone 3, ranging from Edwards street to Molo de Abrigo, defined as an area for strict port use. This allows us to officially confirm that: 1) TCVAL’s project is located inside a port-only area, 2) this has been ratified by the Regional Regulating Plan, and 3) nomination of the Property considered and incorporated, in the formal background facts forwarded to UNESCO, that a port expansion project existed; this allows us to affirm that the Site’s declaration is NOT endangered, as the project was included in the nomination procedure.
