EGABE undertakes a survey on Archival Buildings in Africa

The Survey is now closed

The ICA’s Expert Group on Archival Buildings and Environments (EGABE) has undertaken a survey of archival buildings in Africa as part of the ICA’s Africa Programme.

It is acknowledged that collecting data on the buildings that house archives will assist with the identification of risks to collections and also draw out similarities. This data will additionally enable the Africa Programme to highlight key issues and so define priorities for project work.


The online survey is mobile friendly. You can also download the attached Word document and return it to

The results of the survey will allow us to gauge current needs and inform the priorities for EGABE’s work in this area, as we continue to develop our partnership with ICCROM’s Africa Programme.

We would be grateful to receive your answers by Friday 7th April 2017.


With thanks,

Jonathan Rhys-Lewis (Chair, EGABE), Jamaâ Baida (Co-Chair, Africa Programme), Justus Wamukoya (Co-Chair, Africa Programme)
