In 2020 and 2021, various capacity building measures by the DAI-headquarter supported the establishment of sustainable site management at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Meroë in Sudan.

Sudanese cultural heritage specialists and interested individuals from a cross-professional group of archaeologists, monument conservators, restorers, students, local craftsmen and workers were qualified for the upcoming work at the World Heritage Site. The goal is to establish structured mechanisms involving local civil society to ensure the long-term protection and preservation of the unique site.
