As an evolved continuing urban cultural landscape, the state of conservation in the Old Towns of Djenné (Mali) display a confluence of issues including urban development pressures, and lack of management and conservation planning and actions. These issues are best addressed by the communities living there. More work on local awareness raising and empowerment is needed, as well as funding sources and training for earthen architecture repairs and maintenance of shared public spaces.
