Fondo Fiduciario de Flandes

En 1988, el Gobierno de Flandes del Reino de Bélgica y la UNESCO firmaron un acuerdo de asociación que dio lugar a la creación del Fondo Fiduciario Flandes/UNESCO. El foco de la cooperación reside en el fortalecimiento de capacidades y la construcción de una sociedad del conocimiento.

En 2009, el Gobierno de Flandes comenzó a prestar apoyo al ámbito del patrimonio cultural inmaterial financiando una serie de proyectos pilotos para la elaboración de inventarios comunitarios de alcance local en seis países seleccionados de África Subsahariana (275.000 dólares de los EE. UU.). Desde 2010, el Gobierno de Flandes se ha propuesto fortalecer el apoyo prestado a la salvaguardia del patrimonio inmaterial mediante la financiación de un mayor número de actividades de fortalecimiento de capacidades en África y el desarrollo de conceptos y materiales para una exposición itinerante sobre patrimonio inmaterial y desarrollo sostenible.

En abril de 2010, el Gobierno de Flandes contribuyó a la exposición “Recognizing Our Cultural Heritage: an American and Flemish Dialogue” (Reconocer nuestro patrimonio cultural: un diálogo flamenco-americano).

The project aims at reinforcing the sub-regional cooperation platform, which was created to support seven countries (Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe) in southern Africa in their efforts to safeguard the living heritage present in their territories. Consolidating the results of previous Flanders funded projects since 2009, this platform will be driven by the National Intangible Cultural Heritage Committees or the bodies responsible for intangible cultural heritage in the beneficiary countries. The project will pay due attention to the adequacy of institutional environments, abilities to set up or improve legislative and policy frameworks and the availability of national expertise. Concrete outputs of the project include the strengthening of a pool of resource persons operational in the region and a number of policy or legislative frameworks for safeguarding intangible cultural heritage as well as quantitative evidence on the impact of the project.
