Strengthening sub-regional cooperation and national capacities to effectively safeguard intangible cultural heritage through the reinforcement of legislative, institutional and policy frameworks.
This workshop will be organized with the participants from Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe and possibly from Mozambique.
The training workshop was jointly organized by UNESCO Beijing Office, the National Authority for the Protection of Cultural Heritage (NAPCH), and the National Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea for UNESCO, with the financial contribution from the International Training Centre for Intangible Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region Category 2 Centre under the auspices of UNESCO (CRIHAP). The workshop was part of CRIHAP’s work plan for FY 2016 and was organized under the framework of UNESCO’s global capacity-building programme on strengthening capacities to effectively implement the 2003 Convention of the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Since the ratification of the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in 2008, a number of capacity building training workshops were organized in Pyongyang by UNESCO Beijing in 2010, 2011 (National Safeguarding Awareness-Raising workshop) and 2013 (Training Workshop on the Implementation of 2003 Convention). This workshop was a follow-up to the past workshops and focused on ICH inventorying through community participation.

Zambia conducted a workshop on community based ICH inventory and inventoried 3 elements. This activity took place from 25-29 July 2016 in Kabwe, Central Province and a total of 18 participants, including 5 community members were trained and awarded certificates of successful completion of the training. The workshop was designed to reaffirm the capacity of some of the experts that were trained in Kabwe in 2014 by allowing them to facilitate different sessions of the community inventory training modules. At the end of the facilitation programme, 5 participants who excelled were awarded certificates to practice as ICH Experts.
This activity is part a second phase of the ICH project financed by the Government of Flanders and implemented by the UNESCO Field Office in Harare, Zimbabwe. The Intangible Cultural Heritage Section at the UNESCO Headquarter provided technical support throughout the process of the activity.
