The package and training programme, aiming at improving or enhancing the knowledge and competencies of museum personnel in developing countries, were prepared jointly by UNESCO and ICOM. It exists in English, French, Arabic, Spanish and Russian.
The protection of museum collections has been constantly on the agenda since UNESCO’s foundation in 1945. In the midst of rapidly-developing communication tools and an ever-evolving interaction of cultures and people, museums remain a testimony to human creativity. In recent years, UNESCO has been increasingly solicited in different fields of museums studies. In particular, the growing interest in the protection of museum collections has been triggered by the implementation of major UNESCO operational projects in post-conflict situations such as in Iraq, Sudan and Afghanistan.
We are also aware of vital need for consolidating national human capacity as well as updating techniques and methods of interventions.
