ICH-ESD Pilot Countries in Asia and the Pacific

The project is designed as an inter-sectoral collaboration between UNESCO’s Education and Culture sectors. It aims to identify and promote innovative approaches in integrating ICH into learning environments and curricula at the secondary school level.

Our four pilot countries – Palau, Pakistan, Uzbekistan and Viet Nam – have been selected to represent the diverse socio-cultural environments of the Asia and Pacific region. The outcomes are three national guidelines, two textbooks and one Asia-Pacific regional guide.

You are welcome to replicate or adapt the processes and lesson plans provided in these guides and develop your own engaging methodology.
