Abstract (in English)

Over the last ten years, UNESCO and its partners have actively supported the efforts of the Afghan Government, notably the Ministry of Information and Culture, to increase public awareness of Afghanistan’s cultural heritage. This has been undertaken not only through the practical conservation and stabilisation work at historic monuments and archaeological sites, but also in the form of numerous publications, seminars, workshops and other international, national and provincial cultural events. These endeavours have looked to highlight the significance and contribution of culture towards broader development goals including employment, income generation, education and the promotion of a cohesive society within the context of peace and nationbuilding in Afghanistan. The first chapter relates in this cooperation the Status Quo of the National Museum and Archive Service. The second chapter is about historic missions and recent discoveries. The third chapter is about the case of intangible cultural heritage in Afghanistan. The fourth chapter is a recent case studies from the provinces about built and natural heritages. The fifth chapter relates the World Heritage Property of Bamyian.
