Factors* affecting the property identified in previous reports
Current conservation issues
A field review of the site was conducted by IUCN in cooperation with the Director of National Parks. Very serious impacts on the natural resources of this park were identified.These included dam construction, power line development, wild fires, agricultural encroachment and urbanization of valley bottom habitat.
Priority need is for a management plan which should be a cooperative effort of those responsible for both the natural and cultural heritage. World Heritage Funds for a park office and for training have been approved and the project has now commenced.
The Government of Peru should be informed of concern of the Committee regarding management of this site and encouraged to submit a follow-up request for assistance from the World Heritage Fund if further support is required.
