The outstanding value of Yemen’s historical cities has been recognized globally with the inscription of Sana’a, Zabid, and Shibam on the World Heritage List. This unique heritage has been severely damaged by conflict. As a response, Monumenta Orientalia (Italy) is conducting detailed architectural assessments targeting classified heritage buildings. This project is being implemented in close partnership with Centre Français d'Archéologie et de Sciences Sociales (CEFAS) and Iconem (France) under the initiative "Documenting Yemeni-Built Heritage at Risk."
