  • Contribute to awareness raising on cultural heritage protection;
  • Promote cultural diversity and gender equality;
  • Contribute to economic and social sustainable development, reconciliation, and peacebuilding.

For the 4th call, ALIPH particularly encourages submissions focusing on:

  • The fight against looting and illicit trafficking of cultural goods;
  • The protection, conservation, and rehabilitation of cultural heritage in Yemen.

The application period is from 12 February, 3pm CEST to 16 April 2021, 3pm CEST.
