In a significant step towards preserving and promoting Egypt’s cultural heritage, UNESCO and the NMEC have joined forces by signing an Implementation Partnership Agreement (IPA). This collaboration is meant to enhance the capacities of NMEC in various areas, including fundraising and marketing, conservation practices, scientific labs, library facilities, publication and communication strategies, language skills, and IT capabilities.

The IPA between UNESCO and NMEC, under the Culture Program of UNESCO’s Regional Office in Cairo, aims further to enhance the capabilities of NMEC through targeted activities. The objectives of the IPA include strengthening fundraising and marketing plans, enhancing conservation practices, assessing scientific labs and library facilities, developing comprehensive publication and communication strategies, improving the language skills of NMEC staff, and providing technical support for IT capabilities.

To achieve these objectives, the IPA outlines a range of activities. These activities include conducting a thorough analysis of fundraising needs and opportunities, developing a tailored fundraising and marketing plan, identifying necessary conservation materials and facilitating their procurement, assessing scientific labs and providing required materials and equipment, evaluating the library facility and improving its functionality through necessary resources, developing a comprehensive publication, communication, and visibility strategy, enhancing language skills of selected staff members through training programs, enrolling eligible staff members in museum studies and diploma programs for professional development, and providing technical support to enhance IT capabilities.

This partnership between UNESCO and NMEC holds great promise for preserving and promoting Egypt’s cultural heritage. The IPA’s activities and deliverables will contribute to the long-term sustainability of NMEC, enable the implementation of best practices in conservation and research, enhance communication and outreach efforts, and empower staff members with advanced skills and knowledge. Ultimately, this collaboration will ensure the continued safeguarding and appreciation of Egypt’s invaluable cultural heritage for future generations.
