UK Government to protect international heritage from disasters and conflict
The UK Government is extending the Cultural Protection Fund with an additional £10 million of investment.
The investment builds on the £30 million ploughed into the Cultural Protection Fund since it was established in 2016. It provides funding to safeguard heritage of international importance threatened by conflict in countries across the Middle East and North Africa.
The Fund will now be extended to help heritage sites overseas to prepare for and respond to the potential risk of natural disasters and climate change.
