Funded by Japan, this timely project includes an assessment of the ICH related policy development process in the respective countries and identification of their specific needs for the way forward. Cultural policy consultations have already begun in Belize and Jamaica and will soon commence in Trinidad and Tobago.
As a part of strengthening their safeguarding capacities, countries will also develop and implement a framework for community based inventory of the intangible cultural heritage in their territory, which will include pilot inventories.
The next of several developments kicks off in Belize on the 5-9 November 2012, where various stakeholders such as government officials, non-governmental organizations and community practitioners will come together at the House of Culture in Belize City to partake in a workshop on the implementation of the Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
