About the project

EU4Culture project is funded by the European Union (EU) and is implemented by UNOPS in a close partnership with the Ministry of Culture. It is one of the largest cultural heritage programmes designed by the European Union with a total budget of € 40 million. EU4Culture programme extends to the entire territory affected by the earthquake of November 26, 2019. In addition to the restoration, the project will invest in the revitalization of selected cultural heritage sites, including upgrade of services and site conditions. It’s goal is also to increase tourism potential, directly contributing towards Albania's socio-economic recovery. Local entrepreneurship, artisanship and creative creation evolving around selected sites shall be supported through grants, providing a direct boost to local production and social wellbeing.
