Sustainable Preservation Initiative

about

The Sustainable Preservation Initiative, a program of the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA and the Archaeological Institute of America, seeks to save and preserve the world's cultural heritage by providing transformative and sustainable economic opportunities to local communities. The world’s global heritage is disappearing rapidly. War, looting, climate change, neglect and increases in “extreme tourism” are all contributing to the destruction of sites. Particularly in poorer communities, there is no funding for site preservation, and alternatives to archaeology are the best economic uses of sites Working with local communities and business people, SPI will help develop and implement plans for projects and businesses that will be locally owned and that maximize the spending of dollars in the communities surrounding the sites. These businesses provide sustainable economic benefits related to and revenues for continued site preservation.
