Paper Title:
Recommendations for the Conservation of Earthen Architectural Heritage in Chile
  Abstract

Developing earthen architecture conservation in Chile is a widespread challenge present in different organizations in our country, although a clear legislation has not been defined in order to preserve this important legacy. An extended look throughout the country allows us to understand the state of the art of restoration in Chile. In this respect, the recommendations in this paper are strategic to earthen architecture conservation in the Altiplano and in the Central Valley in the sense that they promote ideas for discussion of a national legislation on conservation and restoration. We believe that understanding how earthen architecture in Chile has been preserved until now enables stakeholders to make better decisions in the long-term; we have focussed this paper on the generation of an emergency strategy that can make it possible for our scarce remaining heritage to resist the next earthquake.
