UNESCO, through its Memory of the World (MoW) Programme, started coordinating a series of Global Policy Forums supported by Japanese Funds-in-Trust (JFIT), focusing on a strategically important aspect of documentary heritage.
This 2nd Forum aims to build the momentum towards articulating a global policy framework for disaster risk reduction and management as a means to sustainable preservation of documentary heritage.
The Forum is part of UNESCO’s strategic support to policy makers, memory institutions, and other stakeholders seeking to implement the UNESCO Recommendation concerning the preservation of, and access to, documentary heritage including in digital form.
UNESCO expects to organize the event as presence-based hybrid, incorporating physical and virtual participation. For details, please see the latest concept note. Online registration is reopened. We will keep you posted about any further developments.
