Tamura addresses issues with attaining a long-term positive impact on the conservation and museum practice training provided by external consultant conservators and other museum practitioners to museums in challenging contexts. She discusses some of the considerations in such projects drawing on the data collected from a survey of sub-Saharan African museum professionals, as well as a case study from the National Museum of Ethnology, Mozambique, where she had an internship placement.
