The protracted war in Yemen has caused a huge destruction in the poor country's infrastructure and posed big threats to the country's ancient cultural heritage which has been already damaged during the military confrontations and due to the lack of maintenance.
Recently, the UNESCO in partnership with the Yemen Social Fund for Development started an emergency rehabilitation project for many historical sites in Yemeni areas including Aden, Shibam in Hadramout governorate, Zabid in Hodeidah and Sanaa within an EU-funded project (Cash for Work).
