Welcome to the Center of Preserving of the Cities Heritage and Identity (CPCHI).

 

The ancient and historic monuments, objects, and archaeological sites of Iraq enrich and inform today's societies, and help connect us to our cultural origins. The Center of Preserving of the Cities Heritage and Identity (CPCHI) specializes in the protection and preservation of the Iraqi's ancient and historic monuments, objects, and archaeological sites.

Cultural heritage sites are becoming collateral victims with the increasing frequency and intensity of disasters, both natural and human induced. There are many different risk factors that threaten our cultural heritage. These include direct and indirect factors, natural risks that could be catastrophic, sporadic or constant, neglect, decay and inappropriate development, wars and conflicts, bad restorations and reconstructions, looting and illicit excavations of sites, and urban planning policies and their consequences; all of which have a heavy impact on cultural heritage.

CPCHI is dedicated to advancing the field of heritage science through transdisciplinary research, education and training, practice and advocacy, with the aim to enhance sustainable preservation of cultural heritage, interpretation, and access in service to the global conservation community.
