Training workshop on the preparation of International Assistance requests

26 May 2017 - 28 May 2017
Beni Mellal
Capacity-building workshop

The training workshop was organized from 26 to 28 May 2017 in Beni Mellal with the participation of 23 people. As at the Tabarka workshop (Tunisia), it was necessary to add an introductory presentation on the Convention and its key concepts to enable participants who had not taken part in previous workshops to become acquainted with the main lines of this instrument. normative and the requirements of its implementation. Due to the large number of these, questions and clarifications have been asked, especially by academics and NGO members. On the other hand, those who participated in all or part of the four workshops (IMP, INV, NOM and AI) were able to have a partial or global idea, as the case may be, of the process of safeguarding the intangible cultural heritage. The big challenge they highlighted is related to the participatory process of implementation. It can be said that participants gained (i) knowledge of the 2003 Convention, (ii) an overview of a failed international assistance request, and (iii) the methodology for assessing requests for international assistance. All have understood that good demand is expressed in a straightforward and straightforward language, that coherence should govern all sections, that the balance between activities / budget / timetable should be ensured and that, above all, it must have been prepared with the participation of the largest number of stakeholders, the most important of which are the communities, groups and individuals concerned.
