Funded by the Royal Government of Norway, UNESCO is working to build national capacity of Myanmar, both in government institutions and in civil society, to contribute to a sustainable long-term framework for implementing the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH).

The integrated capacity-building strategy includes a series of well-prepared workshops and activities, tailored to respond to the identified needs of Myanmar. Two UNESCO-accredited regional trainers have been assigned to facilitate the national workshops, providing technical and policy guidance and collaborating with national partners.

Myanmar will also benefit from other interventions tailored to its specific needs, ranging from practical experience with community-based inventorying to consultation on possible policy or legal reforms, and technical assistance to the intangible cultural heritage management body in the country.
