Website UNESCO

“The conference will explore the main issues affecting the preservation of digital documentary heritage, in order to develop strategies that will contribute to greater protection of digital assets and help to define an implementation methodology that is appropriate for developing countries, in particular.
It will bring together professionals from the heritage sectors, as well as a range of government, IT industry, rightsholders and other stakeholders to assess current policies in order to propose practical recommendations to ensure permanent access to digital documentary heritage.
Ensuring digital continuity of content requires a range of legal, technological, social, financial, political and other obstacles to be overcome. It is hoped that the conference will lead to:
  • the launch of specific initiatives related to digital preservation and to the fostering of access to documentary heritage through digitization;
  • the upgrading or revision of the UNESCO Charter on the Preservation of Digital Heritage;
  • the identification of the legal frameworks that would facilitate long-term digital preservation;
  • the agreement on the promotion or development of exchange standards;
  • the definition of the respective roles of professions, academics, industry and governments in addressing various issues and of a model for their cooperation.
