Best Safeguarding Practices

The Register of Best Safeguarding Practices allows States Parties, communities and other stakeholders to share successful safeguarding experiences and examples of how they surmounted challenges faced in the transmission of their living heritage, its practice and knowledge to the future generation. These methods and approaches should be useful as lessons and models that can be adapted to other circumstances, including those in developing countries.

Since 2009, eleven Best Safeguarding Practices have been selected for the Register.

Each year, based on proposals made by the States Parties, the Committee selects and promotes programmes, projects and activities that best reflect the Convention’s principles and objectives based on the criteria set out in the Operational Directives (I.3).
