National Capacity-Building Workshop on the implementation of the 2003 Convention19/20-09-2008, Maputo (Mozambique)
The 1.5-day National Capacity-Building Workshop on the implementation of the 2003 Convention was held in Maputo, Mozambique. The workshop was a follow-up to the workshop on ICH inventorying held in July 2007 in Maputo for Lusophone African states.
Fifteen national researchers and cultural officers from various provinces of Mozambique participated. Drawing upon the ICH inventory template that they themselves developed during the 2007 workshop, they worked on filling in the template using some examples of ICH from provinces.
At the end of the workshop, the participants decided to review once again the template and communicate to each other any necessary modification. Once the template is revised in the coming weeks, they are to start inventorying ICH in their respective provinces. They are to organize a debriefing workshop to exchange their experiences and further improve ICH inventorying methodologies.

A sub-regional workshop on the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage (2003) - www.unesco.org/culture/ich - took place in Bamako (Mali) from 19 to 20 May 2008. It followed the sub-regional meetings organized by UNESCO in November and December 2006 in Douala (Cameroon) and Dakar (Senegal).
Considering the growing interest for the Convention, the rapid development of its implementation and the fact that many States Parties to the Convention have already started preparing nomination files for inscription on the Lists of Intangible Heritage, it was considered timely to organize a workshop whose objective is to promote the Convention among African Non-States Parties, or in which the ratification process is underway, and to put emphasis on the various aspects of the implementation of this normative instrument.
Among others, the following themes were debated:
- the objectives of the 2003 Convention
- the rights and obligations of States Parties to the Convention
- the mechanisms of the Convention
- inventorying intangible cultural heritage
- the safeguarding measures of the intangible cultural heritage
- the inscription of elements of the intangible cultural heritage on the Lists

The workshop was a follow-up to the sub-regional meeting that the Section of Intangible Cultural Heritage organized on the implementation of the 2003 Convention and ICH inventorying in November 2006 in Dar es Salaam. It is the first of a series of three to be organized for African states.
How can countries—and especially the communities among whom intangible heritage is found—best safeguard heritage that is living, not fixed in buildings or monuments? One effective tool to support international cooperation in such safeguarding efforts, and to strengthen national capacities, is the Intangible Heritage Convention. Adopted by UNESCO in 2003 and entered into force in 2006, this legal instrument had ninety States Parties at the moment of the meeting.
The workshop focused on introducing the Convention to cultural officials of southern African nations, explaining the ratification process, and considering with them how they might implement the Convention to best achieve its goals.
The workshop was made possible thanks to the financial support of the Government of Norway within the framework of the UNESCO/Norway Funds-in-Trust.

The objective of the inter-departmental meeting was to bring together all the governmental actors involved in the ratification procedure by Papua New Guinea of the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.
During the sub-regional meeting in the Pacific on the 2003 Convention, organized in Nadi, Fiji in December 2007, several participating States, including Papua New Guinea, requested assistance from UNESCO in preparing the ratification and implementation of the 2003 Convention in the Pacific. The Director General of UNESCO, during his official visit to Papua New Guinea in February 2008, affirmed UNESCO’s readiness to fully assist the Government through the organization of a national consultation meeting.
Through the meeting organized with the support of Japanese Funds in Trust, UNESCO provided the Government with assistance necessary to present a proposal for the ratification of the 2003 Convention at the National Parliament. The meeting also aimed at reinforcing capacity of governmental officers in the field of culture as well as stakeholders concerned in participating at the international level in the implementation of the Convention, in particular through the submission of intangible heritage elements for inscription on the lists of the Convention and the submission of international assistance requests.
