Over the years, the Syria Trust for Development has developed methods
for inventorying ICH and recently introduced workable criteria to identify
priority ICH safeguarding projects, such as for elements in need of urgent
safeguarding and those best presenting opportunities for the socio-economic
development of their communities. The Trust follows an inclusive approach
when working on ICH projects, allowing local communities to lead on the
safeguarding of their heritage, while encouraging and equipping government
bodies to support these efforts in order to ensure their sustainability.
