Interim African Memory of the World Regional Committee Meeting, Pretoria, 30-31 January 2008


On 11 - 15 June 2007, in Tshwane, South Africa hosted the 8th meeting of UNESCO’s International Advisory Committee (I.A.C) of the Memory of the World (M.O.W) Programme. At this meeting the “Tshwane Minute” was adopted, this document indicates and gives guidance on how African governments need to address and promote the proper preservation of documentary heritage.

Realising that only eight African countries attended and participated in this workshop, a decision was taken that these countries form an interim structure which will facilitate that another meeting for African Countries be held before the end of December 2007 to formalize and establish a “permanent” Africa Regional Committee of MoW.
