Enhancing capacities worldwide for safeguarding intangible cultural heritage

© UNESCO

The global capacity-building strategy is a comprehensive, long-term engagement with Member States to create institutional and professional environments for safeguarding intangible cultural heritage. It addresses the following needs and priorities:

  • Redesign of institutional infrastructures
  • Revision of cultural and other policies and legislation
  • Development of inventory methods
  • Development of effective safeguarding measures
  • Participation in international cooperation mechanisms

UNESCO develops content and training materials and draws upon its dynamic network of trained expert facilitators to deliver capacity-building services in countries around the world.
