Approaches used to design, build, and maintain digital cultural heritage communities and infrastructure in Europe, North America, and Australasia need to be tailored to regional contexts such as Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Cultural and political differences, inherited issues with technical infrastructure and funding, and the need to build trusting and healthy working relationships across national boundaries makes this challenging. The framework and roadmap used during the MaDiH (مديح): Mapping Digital Cultural Heritage in Jordan project (2019 - 2021) provides one of several possible models for such work, as well as highlighting its myriad challenges and opportunities.
