Benefitting country(ies): Chad


Although the State Party ratified the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) in 2008, the country has carried out very few activities within the framework of its implementation so far. As a result, Chad’s rich and multicultural ICH remains little known and undervalued. No inventory has been developed, and the country lacks competent human resources for the realization of participatory inventories and of other safeguarding activities. The project was developed in collaboration with the communities concerned to close these gaps and lay the foundations for an effective and sustainable safeguarding of ICH. Specifically, it aims to provide Chad with its first ICH inventory and with human resources capable of conducting trainings in the elaboration of community-based inventories and inventorying operations, in collaboration with the communities concerned, academics, associations working in the area of ICH safeguarding, and the media, among others.
