Norwegian Funds-in-Trust

The Government of Norway is one of the most significant supporters of UNESCO’s activities in the field of intangible cultural heritage, since it began supporting ICH projects in 2004/2005. The current cumulative contribution (2004-2008) of the Government of Norway for ICH through the FIT amounts to some 2 million USD, and more projects are awaiting to receive approval.

Norway ratified the 2003 Convention in January 2007 and thus also began contributing to the Intangible Cultural Heritage Fund which is established under the 2003 Convention.
