Cultural heritage preservation

In 2004, UNESCO initiated a programme for the Preservation of Endangered Moveable Cultural Assets and Museum Development, with Special funds from USA.

The programme "focuses on sites and collections in danger through the preservation of otherwise endangered cultural objects and artifacts. It seeks to make them accessible to local population as elements of their tangible cultural heritage. In addition, the proposed activities will increase the number of catalogued objects, so that they can be better protected against theft. Action will focus on the following main area: preservation of moveable heritage, with special emphasis on study and publication, inventories, capacity-building and training of staff in protecting cultural property and assets, museology and conservation, as well as manuscripts."
