An online capacity-building exercise targeting stakeholders involved in nomination preparation in Small Island and Developing States (SIDS) in the Caribbean is taking place from 11 to 25 September 2023.
90 experts from 20 countries, including culture officers, civil servants, consultants, academics, non-governmental organizations, and bearer communities are coming together during 5 training sessions to improve their capacities for the elaboration of nomination files for the Lists of the Convention. Throughout the sessions, South-South cooperation and knowledge sharing among SIDS in the region are also promoted.
This training is part of a capacity-building project aiming at better equipping stakeholders engaged in safeguarding to prepare files that successfully respond to the criteria of the 2003 Convention’s evaluation system, thereby resulting in the effective safeguarding of living heritage across the region and contributing to greater geographical balance of the elements inscribed on the Lists. It is generously supported by The Netherlands.
