8.COM 2.BUR - electronic consultation (July 2013)
The Bureau is asked to decide upon the utilization of the funds allocated by the General Assembly to ‘other functions of the Committee’ as described in Article 7 of the Convention and the Operational Directives, in particular to promote the objectives of the Convention and encourage and monitor its implementation through strengthening institutional and community capacities for effectively safeguarding intangible cultural heritage, raise awareness of such heritage and its significance, and disseminate information about best safeguarding practices. Since the Bureau previously approved expenditures under this category, the present decision mainly concerns the remaining balance of US$129,898 as well as some adjustments to reflect the real costs of activities already implemented.
