A Capacity Building Workshop on the Implementation of the Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) Convention in Kiribati will take place in Tarawa from 25 to 29 June 2018. The Workshop will bring together around 50 participants, including goverment officials, the representatives from the communities in Kiribati's outer islands, representatives of the Women's and Youth Committees and ICH practitioners and knowledge holders in order to build capacity for the implementation of the ICH Convention at the national level.
Over the years, the Kiribati Government and people have actively engaged in the safeguarding of its Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) for community well-being and sustainable development. These efforts resulted in the country's ratification of the ICH Convention in January 2018. It is now urgent for Kiribati to build the capacity of stakeholders for the ICH Safeguarding and develop national systems for the implementation of the ICH Convention at the country level.

The Capacity Building Workshop will be held by the Ministry of Internal and Social Affairs of Kiribati in Tarawa with the assistance of UNESCO. The Workshop will provide the ICH stakeholders in Kiribati with the opportunities not only for obtaining the knowledge and skills related to the ICH safeguarding but also for discussing the integration of ICH in different sectors of Kiribati such as agriculture, tourism, education, commerce and environment.

The Workshop will be facilitated by Mr Sipiriano Nemani, Director of the Fiji Museum and a UNESCO-accredited facilitator.
