Southern Africa: Enhanced national capacities and sub-regional cooperation for safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage

23 February 2015, Lesotho

Thanks to this project, which aimed to enhance the sub-regional cooperation as well as the national capacities of effective implementation of the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, each of the participating countries is now dotted with the national committee on intangible cultural heritage and a pool of trainers who are ready to support safeguarding activities at the national level. In many of these countries a process has also been initiated to review or establish legislations and policies in favor of intangible cultural heritage.
