The Secretariat of the 2003 Convention in the framework of its global capacity-building programme is organizing an online Training of trainers for selected members of the facilitators network in Africa on how to support the roll out of the periodic reporting process in the region in 2023. The trainings will take place over three days and seek to reinforce the network of facilitators in Africa and mobilize them to co-facilitate the training for periodic reporting country points in the region in 2023.
The training is the first stage of a two-stage process for the capacity-building approach on periodic reporting in Africa in 2022-2023. In the second stage, a regional training will be organized with country focal points designated by their countries to equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge to carry out periodic reporting in their countries in line with the Convention’s Overall results framework.
This workshop will take place from 17 to 26 October in Banjul, The Gambia. It will comprise three parts. In part 1, the training will be targeted to Gambian media specialized in culture and will provide an introduction to the 2003 Convention and their role in safeguarding intangible cultural heritage. In part 2, the training will be targeted to Gambian heritage experts, community representatives and key government technical staff and provide a training on community-based inventorying, under the 2003 Convention, including its ethical considerations, methods and techniques. In part 3, a pilot inventorying exercise will be undertaken with communities in the Banjul area. The activity is being undertaken in the framework of the extrabudgetary project ‘Capacity-building for safeguarding intangible cultural heritage and contributing to sustainable development’ being funded through an earmarked contribution to the Fund from the Government of France.
