Title
Joint Japan/UNESCO Mission Report, Tchogha Zanbil, February 1995
Description
The first joint Japan/UNESCO project identification mission to this World Heritage Site inscribed in 1979, which took place in February 1995, observed that in spite of the application of a good traditional method of conservation, consisting of covering the exposed structures each year with "kargel" (mud and straw mixture), the site has continued to deteriorate in the absence of a viable method for sustainable conservation of the mud-brick structures which are annually exposed to heavy rainfall.
