Pays : Jordan

Durée : 30-Sep-2019 to 29-Dec-2024

Descriptif
The American Centre of Oriental Research (ACOR), a non-profit academic organization, was established in Amman, Jordan in 1968. ACOR promotes studies, teaching, and increased knowledge of ancient and Middle Eastern studies with Jordan as a focus. ACOR’s main building in Amman has served as a base for countless visiting scholars, students, tour groups, dig teams, training programs, and staff members since it officially opened in July 1986. This project aims at enhancing ACOR’s ability to support national institutions in Jordan in the areas of conservation of cultural heritage. The project will directly benefit the staff of ACOR who will use the newly rehabilitated building facility for conservation research works. Indirectly, the project will benefit the total population of Jordan (around 10.1 million), and tourists (around 4.5 million) who visit the archeological sites in Jordan. UNOPS provides support for the rehabilitation works of the American Centre of Oriental Research (ACOR) Building.
