In 2007, UNESCO forged a three-year partnership with ICCROM for the “Preventive Conservation of Endangered Museum Collections in Developing Countries.” The focus of this partnership was on the documentation of collections and access to storage in museums. It was felt that these two issues required stronger political support and the major involvement of decision-makers at both institutional and professional levels. ICCROM responded by developing didactic tools and methodologies, and by creating international networks. RE-ORG is the end result of this partnership.
