This activity will strengthen the work of the UNESCO IFAP and MoW programmes to support best practices in policy making and implementation for the support of Universal Access to Information and preservation of documentary heritage. the latter (documentary heritage), is an important vehicle for regional cooperation and peace sustenance in Southern Africa especially in relation to the liberation movement. This action will seek to improve Southern Africa's current low inscription rates in the Memory of the World registries.
