Asia-Pacific Heritage Awards Conservation DistListUNESCOMuseum Security Network and Museum Security Mailinglist

UNESCO's Asia-Pacific Heritage Awards for Culture Heritage Conservation recognize the efforts and contributions of individuals and organizations within the private sector who have successfully conserved and restored structures and buildings of heritage value in the region.

The annual Heritage Awards programme is one strategy the Office of the UNESCO Regional Advisor for Culture in Asia and the Pacific is using to promote conservation of the region's built heritage, which is often threatened by unchecked development, neglect, or inappropriate reuse.  UNESCO believes that recognizing successful preservation efforts helps spur additional projects within the same community, advocating the culture of preservation and conservation through the use of appropriate conservation techniques and approaches.
