ICOMOS-Nigeria > Thematic Areas

Thematic Priorities Overview

ICOMOS-Nigeria actions are grounded in the framework of the 1972 UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Protection, at National Level, of the Cultural and Natural Heritage and the World Heritage Convention, and other ICOMOS Charters and Recommendations. This is with the expectation that the engagement at national level will promote cultural and natural heritage protection at national level, while also building the capacity of ICOMOS-Nigeria to support the global mandate of ICOMOS International as an Advisory Body of the World Heritage Committee for the implementation of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention, which Nigeria ratified in 1974.
