Earthern Architecture Programme

In 2004, the Historic Cities Programme began restoring the Great Mosque in Mopti, Mali. The restoration expanded to include sanitation, street paving, healthcare and other measures in the neighbouring Komoguel district. Since 2006, the Programme has extended its work to Timbuktu, where it has restored the Djingarey Ber mosque, and to Djenné, where it has also started restoration on the Great Mosque. The programmes in each town are expected to expand into adjacent quarters.
