Comité Consultatif National pour la protection des biens culturels en cas de conflit armé en République Démocratique du Congo

The rich cultural heritage of the Democratic Republic of Congo is threatened by looting and trafficking, now exacerbated by ethnic, political, and socio-economic tensions. To take the first step in protecting this heritage, this project will train local heritage specialists so that they can establish an inventory of national cultural heritage.

This project is led by ALIPH in partnership with the UAE Ministry of Culture and Youth.
