The purpose of this conference, which was entitled Documentation as a Tool for Heritage Protection, was to bring together international, regional, and local experts to explore how digital and on-the-ground documentation may address the challenges facing cultural heritage. While the focus of the conference was on Tunisia and Libya, broader regional issues were also discussed.

The conference also provided an opportunity for Tunisian and Libyan stakeholders trained in the EAMENA methodology of digital documentation via remote sensing to present their projects and feedback.
