This paper examines Unesco‟s recommendations on communication and cultural heritage issues between 1967 and 1984 and how they translated to action, using Nigeria as a case study. Nine
recommendations were analyzed in an exploratory desk research that enabled the understanding of whether or not they were implemented, and if they were, the extent to which the implementation achieved set objectives. Findings show that 50 years on, Unesco‟s recommendations, implementation of recommendations and achievement of objectives are yet to form a coherent sequence.
