Cultural Heritage Conservation and Management Training Program 2014-2015

In 2013, World Monuments Fund developed a cultural heritage conservation and management program to engage U.S. university faculty with Iraqi and Kurdish professionals. During the January 2015 session in Sulaimaniyah, participants considered a variety of approaches to heritage management planning and site interpretation with particular emphasis on the urban context. Practical coursework included training in digital documentation techniques and site visits to build on participants' understanding of cultural heritage.
