Many states parties are intensifying their efforts to meet their obligations concerning the Convention for the safeguarding of the Intangible cultural heritage of 2003. The global capacity-building strategy developed by UNESCO covers the various components of this instrument, including ratification, awareness raising, implementation at the national level, and inventorying and safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage present in the territory of States Parties. The main objective is to assist States parties in implementing the Convention by adopting appropriate measures.

UNESCO Beirut regional Office in Lebanon contributes to these efforts by organizing a workshop on the implementation of the Convention in Broumana, scheduled for July 11 to 15, 2011. This workshop is the first for the countries of the region since the training of trainers, which took place in Abu Dhabi from April 10 to 14, 2011. Participants are from Syria and Lebanon, and come from academia, non- governmental organizations and the public sector.

Facilitators of the workshop are Ahmed Skounti, Professor at the National Institute of Archaeology and Heritage Sciences in Morocco and Annie Tohmé-Tabet, Associate professor of anthropology at Saint Joseph University in Lebanon, both of whom have been accredited and certified by UNESCO.

The workshop takes place at Printania Hotel in Broumana in the Eastern high suburbs of Beirut.
