RISING FROM THE DEPTHS

UTILISING MARINE CULTURAL HERITAGE IN EAST AFRICA
TO HELP DEVELOP SUSTAINABLE SOCIAL, ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL BENEFITS

The Rising from the Depths network is funded for four years, 2017-21, by the UK Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) through the Arts and Humanities Research Council Network Plus scheme. We have funded a selection of Innovation Projects across Kenyan, Tanzania, Madagascar and Mozambique that aim to utilise Marine Cultural Heritage (MCH) to deliver sustainable development.

Our aim is to identify how the tangible submerged and coastal MCH of the region, and its associated intangible aspects, can stimulate ethical, inclusive and sustainable economic growth in the region. Through our funded projects, we hope to build social cohesion and reduce poverty in individual states, but also in enhance the value and impact of overseas aid in the maritime sector.
