Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a recommendation concerning the preservation of cultural property endangered by public or private works, adopted by the General Conference of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), meeting in Paris from October-November 1968. The preservation or salvage of cultural property endangered by public or private works should be ensured through the means such as: (a) legislation, (b) finance, (c) administrative measures, (d) procedures to preserve and to salvage cultural property, (e) penalties, (f) repairs, (g) awards, (h) advice, and (i) educational programmes. Member States should, when the nature of the property so allows, adopt the necessary measures to ensure the repair, restoration or reconstruction of cultural property damaged by public or private works. Educational institutions, historical and cultural associations, public bodies concerned with the tourist industry and associations for popular education should have programmes to publicize the dangers to cultural property.
