The 1.5-day National Capacity-Building Workshop on the implementation of the 2003 Convention was held in Maputo, Mozambique. The workshop was a follow-up to the workshop on ICH inventorying held in July 2007 in Maputo for Lusophone African states.

Fifteen national researchers and cultural officers from various provinces of Mozambique participated. Drawing upon the ICH inventory template that they themselves developed during the 2007 workshop, they worked on filling in the template using some examples of ICH from provinces.

At the end of the workshop, the participants decided to review once again the template and communicate to each other any necessary modification. Once the template is revised in the coming weeks, they are to start inventorying ICH in their respective provinces. They are to organize a debriefing workshop to exchange their experiences and further improve ICH inventorying methodologies.
