Building upon a regional study on the existing legislation in the field of safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, a new regional capacity-building programme starts. Throughout 2013, the four countries are going to build the professional and institutional environments required for the effective safeguarding of their living heritage, working closely with UNESCO’s Offices in San José and Guatemala and benefitting from the generous contribution of Spain to the Intangible Cultural Heritage Fund.
