Cooperation for the conservation of cultural heritage in Asia

 The Asian region, which has a close cultural exchange with Japan, is rich in precious cultural heritage. However, not a few of the countries there still have problems with their systems for the preservation of cultural heritage and/or relevant technology level. How to protect cultural heritage from deteriorating environmental factors and pressures of development as well as conflicts and natural disasters is a common issue of the world. The Institute therefore contributes to improving systems for the protection of cultural heritage and transfer of relevant technologies through technical assistances and research studies in terms of conservation, restoration, management and utilization of cultural heritage in different countries.
