Chan Chan Archaeological Zone
On the recommendation of the Bureau and following a request from the Peruvian
authorities, the Committee also decided to inscribe Chan Chan archaeological zone
on the List of World Heritage in Danger. In so doing, the Committee recommended
that appropriate measures be taken for the conservation, restoration and
management of the site and specifically that the excavation work on the site be
halted unless it was accompanied by appropriate conservation measures and that
all possible steps be taken to control the plundering of the site.
