ICCROM’s Annual Report 2019

Read about ICCROM's activities in 2019!

The Report provides an overview of our activities over the past year and highlights many of our successes in this reporting period.

The theme of this annual report is the importance of partnership. Only together can we carry out activities that will make a lasting impact and address contemporary issues in heritage conservation worldwide. We warmly thank our Member States and partner institutions for their support and collaboration in achieving our results. This collaborative effort also includes professionals in the field, communities and members of what we call Our Team (staff, collaborators, interns and fellows) to which we are grateful for their involvement, hard work and friendship.
