The Cultural Protection Fund is an initiative of the UK government, which has dedicated £30 million in official development assistance (ODA) funding between 2016 and 2020 to support cultural heritage in conflict-affected countries (see page nine for further information about ODA).
The overarching objective of the Fund is to help create sustainable opportunities for social and economic development through building capacity to foster, safeguard and promote cultural heritage in conflict-affected countries. The Fund supports efforts to keep cultural heritage sites and objects safe, as well as supporting the recording, conservation and restoration of cultural heritage. It also provides opportunities to local communities for training and education, enabling and empowering them in the long term to value, care for and benefit from their cultural heritage.
