Ongoing conflict in Yemen has led to the endangerment of cultural heritage, including the damage and looting of museums’ collections. The project will create an inventory of the collections of the Sana'a National Museum and four provincial museums. This will allow for their ongoing management and support the recovery of objects in the event of looting or illicit trafficking.
