Northern Areas, Pakistan
MORE INFORMATION

Construction of the Diamer Basha Dam will impact a vast cultural landscape that incorporates more than 35 villages. Therefore, a priority is to effectively engage these communities in the documentation and assessment process. In December 2010, a stakeholder meeting of more than 70 representatives from the villages was held to share local knowledge about the heritage, tangible and intangible, from their respective communities that they feel is of value and at risk. A workshop was also held to train local community members to assist in heritage documentation efforts. For more information on these activities, please see the following documents:
