Protecting and stabilizing heritage of local importance is essential for building resilient communities in fragile conflict or post-conflict situations. The project aims to identify, coordinate, and monitor different projects that provide quick and urgent first aid to cultural heritage under threat or already damaged due to conflict in Asia and Africa. The Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development implements these projects only with local partners. It ensures that the most pressing local needs are met, and that the local organizations receive support allowing them to manage and protect heritage independently in the future.
