Although intangible cultural heritage often has tangible objects, artefacts or places associated with it, it is also something different from tangible heritage, as for example the “properties forming part of the cultural and natural heritage” that are listed on the World Heritage List. Because intangible heritage is constantly recreated, the concept of “authenticity” applied to World Heritage properties cannot be used for ICH. The strategies for safeguarding tangible heritage cannot be transferred mechanically to the effort to safeguard ICH, which often requires quite different approaches and methods. Nevertheless, there is the possibility of adopting integrated approaches to safeguarding the tangible and intangible heritage of communities and groups in ways that are “consistent and mutually beneficial and reinforcing”, as the 2004 Yamato Declaration states.
