Chan Chan Archaeological Zone (Peru)
Conservation and maintainance of this very extensive archaeological site requires continuous efforts. Continued research on conservation techniques for adobe structures is necessary. An interregional training course on adobe conservation was in preparation between ICCROM, CRAterre, and the Regional Project. The issue of invasions and land occupation by farmers needs to be addressed immediately in order to rapidly and permanently reclaim and secure the site's intangible zone.
