What has been achieved in the ratification, implementation, and capacity building processes related to intangible cultural heritage in your country?

This is the question that is going to be asked to an audience of Directors of Culture during a workshop organized in Nairobi, Kenya, from 25 to 28 November 2012. Burundi, Eritrea, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, Djibouti, South Sudan, and Uganda will be represented.

The aim of the workshop is to have the participants understand more deeply the UNESCO 2003 Convention on the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage and its implementation at national level, as well as the role and tasks of the State Party in the implementation of the Convention at national level.
