New Preservation and Conservation (PAC) Centre for Francophone Africa and oral traditions


2 February 2016


CERDOTOLA in Cameroon


Dear all,
IFLA is pleased to announce the creation of a new Preservation and Conservation (PAC) Centre which will support Francophone speaking countries (with a focus on Francophone Africa) in preservation and conservation matters. The PAC Centre is also specialised in the preservation of oral traditions and will be able to assist the wider PAC network with this. The new PAC Centre is based at CERDOTOLA in Cameroon.
The Governing Board of IFLA endorsed the creation of the PAC Centre at its December 2015 meeting. The PAC Centre clearly fills gaps identified during the review of the PAC Centres and the PAC Core Activity of 2014.
The new PAC Centre will be able to support the region in preservation and conservation matters as well as assisting in the safeguarding of cultural heritage. The PAC Centre will organise workshops and training on appropriate topics.
We would like to welcome Sophie Dibounje Madiba as the new Director to the PAC Centre and we are happy to extend the IFLA PAC network further. We are looking forward to a fruitful collaboration with the CERDOTOLA.
