The tenth session of the General Assembly of the States Parties to the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage was held at UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, from Tuesday 11 to Wednesday 12 June 2024. Over two days, States Parties gathered to discuss issues that are important for the safeguarding of living heritage around the world and the future of the Convention.

These included notably the reflection on a broader implementation of Article 18 of the Convention and proposal for related amendments to the Operational Directives, the Plan for the use of the resources of the Intangible Cultural Heritage Fund and the accreditation of non-governmental organizations, as well as the election of the new Committee members.

Documents are published in the six official languages of the United Nations (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish) on this webpage.
