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

This guide presents how the Batik Museum and the communities in Pekalongan, Central Java, have brought the theory and practice of batik making to the hearts and hands of young students under the programme entitled “Education and training in Indonesian Batik intangible cultural heritage for elementary, junior, senior, vocational school and polytechnic students, in collaboration with the Batik Museum in Pekalongan”, selected as Best Safeguarding Practice in 2009.
To revitalize Fandango, living heritage of the Caiçaras in south-east coast of Brazil, the communities, associations, individuals, and municipalities have joined efforts with the Caburé Cultural Association to create a living museum, which is not a museum in the ordinary sense. It is a network of fandanguieros, musical instrument makers, fandango clubs, craft shops, museums, cultural centres and information booths. “Fandango’s Living Museum” was selected as Best Safeguarding Practice in 2011.
