Handicraft traditions of various countries to be safeguarded

Oct '09
The Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Heritage, chaired by Awadh Ali Saleh Al Musabi (United Arab Emirates), has identified 12 elements of intangible cultural heritage in need of urgent safeguarding in eight countries during its current session in Abu Dhabi.

The inscription of cultural practices in Belarus, China, France, Kenya, Latvia, Mali, Mongolia and Viet Nam, which were examined by independent experts, marks the launch by the Committee of the List of Intangible Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding. The Committee considered that the viability of these cultural elements is endangered, despite the efforts of the communities or groups concerned.

Following the inscription, States concerned will implement specific safeguarding plans, as indicated in their nomination files. Intangible cultural elements in need of urgent safeguarding will be eligible for financial assistance from the Fund established to this end.
