This workshop is part and parcel of an ongoing 24-month project with the aim of strengthening capacities to safeguard ICH in Egypt for sustainable development. The project is the result a of needs assessment in the field of intangible cultural heritage that was made possible thanks to the financial contribution of the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority (ADTCA).
Funded also by ADTCA, this project intends to support Egypt in its efforts to safeguard its living heritage, in accordance with the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage. In partnership with the Ministry of Culture of Egypt, UNESCO Cairo has already provided policy advisory services and capacity-building activities based on needs previously identified in consultation with national partners through the sector assessment, conducted in April-August 2015.
