The challenges of capacity building in the Arab world

14 January 2013 - 17 January 2013
Regional meeting

How can Arab States effectively implement the 2003 Convention at the national level? What can be done to promote regional cooperation in the Arab world to strengthen the capacities of all concerned stakeholders? What are the best ways to raise people’s awareness and assure the involvement of concerned communities in the process of safeguarding?
These are amongst the issues that representatives of Ministries of Culture of all countries from the Arab region will discuss during the meeting on ‘The challenges of capacity building in the field of intangible cultural heritage’ in Doha from 14 to 17 January 2013.
Generously supported by Qatar and co-organized by the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage of Qatar, ALECSO and UNESCO, this meeting will be the occasion to plan increased cooperation within the region for the effective safeguarding of the intangible cultural heritage.
The meeting will be co-facilitated by a group of experts from the Region, all members of a network of 77 experts trained to use the UNESCO curricula specifically designed to build capacity on implementing the Convention.
