The Old City of Mosul, a Heritage in Great Danger

Published on May 16th, 2018 • UNESCO

The conflict in Iraq has severely damaged the old city of Mosul. According to initial assessments, nearly 20,000 buildings were either damaged or destroyed. The level of destruction is unmatched since the Second World War. The western part of the old city was particularly affected and more than half of its buildings, including many iconic sites, were either harmed or destroyed. To accurately assess the destruction, UNESCO tasked Iconem, a company specialized in heritage digitization and scanning, to do a precise drone survey of the old city. In February 2018, the Director-General of UNESCO announced the launch of a major initiative for the reconstruction of the Old City of Mosul. Supported by the Prime Minister of Iraq and the United Nations Secretary-General, this initiative focuses on the human dimension of recovery efforts, through rehabilitation of cultural heritage and education for young people, including vocational training. Education and culture are key conditions for reviving the spirit of Mosul and ensuring the inhabitants, and all Iraqis, are truly the first actors in the recovery of the country. UNESCO will organize a Scientific Conference in June 2018, as well as an International Donors Conference in September 2018 to fund the initiative’s projects
