Abstract (in English)

This publication makes concrete the UNESCO/Italy funds-in-Trust project. It is particularly about the Minaret of Jam and the fifth Minaret of Herat, in Afghanistan, which states were seriously deteriorated by civil conflicts after decades. It draws the evolution of UNESCO's help to preserve Afghanistan's cultural heritage. Since the 1960s, UNESCO worked in Afghanistan with a kind of monotonous way. In the 1970s appeared the UNDP/UNESCO Project for "Capacity-Building in the field of Cultural Heritage Conservation in Afghanistan"; preparing the "International Safeguarding Campaign for the Old City of Herat". The 1980s, UNESCO's missions reached Kabul; but they weren't able to reach Herat which was caught up in armed conflict. The 1990s was marked by the rule of the Taliban regime starting in September 1996. Nevertheless, UNESCO continued to help the Afghan Government to protect its cultural heritage.
