The ICC recommends to the Chinese Team, in cooperation with the APSARA National Authority:

1. In relation with the complexity of the situation and the interconnections among the different problems to organize an onsite workshop on the occasion of the next meeting of the ICC.

2. The workshop in addition to the structural aspects should include the issue of the degradation of decorated walls with the participation of specialist teams (national and international) having worked on similar issue of stone degradation and stone pathology.

3. A sample test should be undertaken with comparative evaluation of the use of different materials and chemical products.

Meanwhile, the ICC recommends to put in place a temporary protection over the wall degraded in order to reduce the variations of temperatures and the direct impact of rains on the decorated stones.
