ALBANIA / Albania
Cultural Heritage without Borders (Albania)
As the monuments at the world heritage site in Berat, Albania continue to fall into disrepair, there is little data available to help preserve them. In collaboration with Cultural Heritage without Borders we set forth to help planners in Berat better preserve cultural monuments and protect them from natural and human-induced hazards. We achieved this by assessing the monuments, creating a database, and interviewing residents and key informants. The database we created will be forwarded to the Albanian government and other organizations to help them make well-informed decisions. The assessments of each monument evidenced that Berat has a large problem with vacant homes in disrepair. We also concluded that preservation is extremely limited due to a lack of financial resources.
