Protecting Cultural Heritage from the Consequences of Disasters

The project is co-funded by the European Commission Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG ECHO), within the framework of the Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM) under the UCPM-2018-PP-AG Call (Prevention and Preparedness in civil protection and marine pollution). It began in January 2019 and will last until December 2021. Building upon recent experiences on the protection of cultural heritage (CH) during disasters, and on the outcomes of PROMEDHE, a previous EU funded project, PROCULTHER is contributing to develop the capacities of UCPM Participating States to protect cultural heritage by placing this issue at the top of national European agendas and making the enhancement of CH resilience a common goal. In particular, PROCULTHER will focus on establishing a UCPM driven multi-sectoral capacity for the safeguard of cultural heritage in emergency based on the definition of a European common methodology and technical Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) in this field.
