The capacity-building workshop on implementation of the Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage for representatives of the Ministry of Culture of Cameroon, Cameroon National Commission for UNESCO,
media, university professors and Cameroon traditional community leaders, was held in Kribi from 7 to 10 June 2011.

Two UNESCO experts, benefiting from the training of trainers in Libreville (January 2011), have been selected by the organization to facilitate the workshop in Kribi.

This workshop was designed to develop and strengthen the capacity of participants on issues of safeguarding intangible heritage in the national context specific to Cameroon, in order to enable them to contribute to the implementation of the Convention. The ratification of the Convention by the country followed the workshop.
