Alliance for Cultural First Aid, Peace and Resilience
Armed conflicts and resulting humanitarian crises, severely limit local communities’ ability to protect their endangered heritage. Integrating cultural heritage first aid into humanitarian relief can help to alleviate trauma and promote sustainable peace in communities. By focusing on the Middle East, North Africa, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, this project strengthens capacity building in preparedness, response, and recovery among communities adversely affected by conflicts. The project trains two dozen local professionals to implement 20 projects with local security forces and humanitarian workers to provide conflict-sensitive cultural first aid and help to ensure peace and resilience.
