Renewed EU support to preserve the island's cultural heritage



Renewed EU support to preserve the island

The European Commission has launched a new project to strengthen efforts already in place to preserve Cyprus’ cultural heritage across the island. The €2 million contribution will support the work of the bi-communal Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage. “The successful measures already taken to preserve the island’s rich cultural heritage clearly show what both communities can achieve when they work together. It is very important that both sides continue the work to protect their common cultural heritage and also, through this, pave the way for reconciliation and the reunification of Cyprus,” said Commissioner Stefan Füle. Commissioner Androulla Vassiliou also welcomed the announcement. The EU support will finance priorities identified by the committee, including conservation and emergency support works on five sites, activities in ten small projects, and raising awareness in Cyprus about the importance of preserving cultural heritage for future generations. The works will be implemented by the United Nations Development Programme’s Partnership for the Future, in collaboration with the advisory board of the Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage.
