The Wadi Arava Eco-tourism Network

Since 2015, we have been part of a multi-national team of experts looking at the potential for developing a regional eco-tourism strategy for the Dead Sea Basin. This new initiative aims to enhance the existing responsible tourism activities in the southern part of the Jordan Rift Valley and to help create new professional networks that support cross-border community involvement.

Oman National Spatial Strategy

The Oman National Spatial Strategy will provide a planning framework for the social, economic and physical development of the Sultanate over the next thirty years. Appointed in 2013 by the Supreme Council of Planning to form the locally-based Planning and Scientific Management team, we are coordinating the work of eight thematic teams including GIS, Environment, Cultural Heritage, Economy, Transportation and Infrastructure.

Dar Al Athar Al Islamiyyah, Kuwait

We have recently been appointed by HE Sheikha Hussah Sabah Al-Salim Al-Sabah in positioning the Dar al-Athar Al-Islamiyyah (DAI) to become a United Nations' Cultural Centre of Excellence as part of the UNDP's South-South Cooperation Initiative. As envisaged, the DAI Cultural Centre of Excellence will comprise the Amricani Cultural Centre, the Yarmouk Cultural Centre and the Collections Office together with dedicated DAI buildings on the site of the Kuwait National Museum.

Balkans Cultural Heritage Programme

P+P is working with Cultural Heritage without Borders (CHwB), a non-governmental organisation based in Stockholm and funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). CHwB works to safeguard cultural heritage, in its widest sense, as part of its work on inclusion, conflict reconciliation, infrastructure restoration and capacity building in areas that have experienced dictatorship or war.

Working hands-on in the region with architects, government agencies and NGOs, our role is to contribute to these overarching aims by providing expert advice on strategic planning in cultural heritage development, business planning, cultural tourism and site interpretation. P+P's work has extended to facilitating the establishment of the Balkans Museums Network which now includes thirty-three member institutions across six Balkan countries and is doing much to facilitate positive cross-border relations.
