Project for combatting illicit trafficking of cultural goods in Côte d’Ivoire now completed
The project to implement security measures and training in the fight against illicit trafficking of cultural goods for museums in Côte d'Ivoire is now completed. It was the continuation of an initiative between ALIPH and ICOM (International Council of Museums) that began in 2020 to support 14 museums in Western and Central Africa, including Côte d’Ivoire. Building on this experience, the Heritage Protection Department of the ICOM Secretariat, in close collaboration with the ICOM Côte d’Ivoire National Committee, and financial support of ALIPH, developed and implemented this new project, which will undoubtedly remain a model for the region.
