The United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organization (UNESCO) announced on Tuesday that it would mobilize funds to deal with the material damage caused by heavy rains and floods in several affected “historical centers” of Yemen to places that are considered to be World Heritage.
The agency issued a statement underlining that it “deeply regrets” the deaths caused by these floods, which have affected the capital, Yemen, among others, and stressed that “the damage is endangering the lives of those living in these” historical centers “.
For example, he said that “some of them do not have adequate protection while exacerbating an already difficult situation for many others”. “Weather conditions continue to threaten the very survival of Yemen’s unique cultural heritage, evidence of people’s creativity and adaptability to the country’s diverse landscapes and environmental conditions.”
UNESCO has therefore recognized “the need for a concerted effort to prevent further losses and to implement risk mitigation mechanisms so that the residents of these historic centers can continue to live and preserve their heritage as has been the case for centuries”.
