This workshop aimed to introduce the mechanisms for the implementation of the intangible cultural heritage Convention and strengthen national capacities to implement and safeguard intangible cultural heritage.

It brought together representatives of public institutions and civil society directly related to the inventory, management and promotion of intangible cultural heritage of their country to give them the tools necessary to safeguard the intangible heritage present in their territory. A particular focus was put on inventory-making as well as on the criteria and procedures for the inscription on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity and the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding.
