In Yemen, many heritage experts have been forced to leave the country or change careers in the face of ongoing conflict. To address this lack of capacity, this project will train Yemeni heritage experts and work with communities on the first defense lines to protect heritage sites from looting and acts of vandalism. This project will also develop sustainable business opportunities around heritage sites and tourism.
