Thanks to the generous support of the International Information and Networking Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region (ICHCAP), a category 2 centre under the auspices of UNESCO, the UNESCO brochures titled Intangible Cultural Heritage and Sustainable Development and Intangible Cultural Heritage and Gender are now available in seven new linguistic versions: Bhutani, Korean, Nepali, Singhalese, Tamil, Thai and Vietnamese.

Adding to the existing linguistic versions, the brochures are now available in fifteen languages and soon will be accessible in other languages from the Asia-Pacific region. They are part of the Kit on Intangible Cultural Heritage containing nine brochures and fact sheets on twelve safeguarding projects. In all, they provide a basic reference and acts as pedagogical instruments for promoting and ensuring an effective understanding of intangible cultural heritage and the 2003 Convention.
