Read the following passage carefully and answer questions 46 to 51 :

Heritage conservation practices improved worldwide after the International Centre for the Study

of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) was established with

UNESCO’s assistance in 1959. The inter-governmental organisation with 126 member states has

done a commendable job by training more than 4,000 professionals, providing practice standards,

and sharing technical expertise. In this golden jubilee year, as we acknowledge its key role in

global conservation, an assessment of international practices would be meaningful to the Indian

conservation movement. Consistent investment, rigorous attention, and dedicated research and

dissemination are some of the positive lessons to imbibe. Countries such as Italy have

demonstrated that prioritising heritage with significant budget provision pays. On the other hand,

India, which is no less endowed in terms of cultural capital, has a long way to go. Surveys

indicate that in addition to the 6,600 protected monuments, there are over 60,000 equally valuable

heritage structures that await attention. Besides the small group in the service of Archaeological

Survey of India, there are only about 150 trained conservation professionals. In order to

overcome this severe shortage the emphasis has been on setting up dedicated labs and training

institutions. It would make much better sense for conservation to be made part of mainstream

research and engineering institutes, as has been done in Europe.

Increasing funding and building institutions are the relatively easy part. The real challenge is to

redefine international approaches to address local contexts. Conservation cannot limit itself to

enhancing the art-historical value of the heritage structures, which international charters perhaps

overemphasise. The effort has to be broad-based : It must also serve as a means to improving the

quality of life in the area where the heritage structures are located. The first task therefore is to

integrate conservation efforts with sound development plans that take care of people living in the

heritage vicinity. Unlike in western countries, many traditional building crafts survive in India, and

conservation practices offer an avenue to support them. This has been acknowledged by the Indian

National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage charter for conservation but is yet to receive substantial

state support. More strength for heritage conservation can be mobilised by aligning it with the green

building movement. Heritage structures are essentially eco-friendly and conservation could become a

vital part of the sustainable building practices campaign in future.
