Heritage conservation is essential in Palestine, especially as a means of preserving national identity. Unfortunately, the majority of Palestine’s archaeological sites and traditional buildings suffer neglect, decay, and vandalism. Implementing conservation policies and projects is also fraught with difficulties, including a lack of qualified personnel, clearly defined methodologies, and technology.
Despite the difficult context, we have carried out successfully conservation of ancient and modern mosaics and we have preserved and enhanced historical buildings and archaeological sites involving local communities and supporting sustainable local economy.
The protection of everyone’s cultural heritage guarantees the diversity and richness of the territory, makes it more special and allows the various communities to be represented and not erased from history.
