So-called Best Practices are recognized by the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage following article 18 of the 2003 UNESCO Convention. The article describes Good practices as programmes, projects and activities for the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage considered to best reflect the principles and objectives of the 2003 Convention.
The register compiled of the accepted submissions is designed as an exchange platform for the purpose of training and capacity building in different regions. Naturally it is a prestigious designation to be a Good Practice example that becomes the reference for many other safeguarding activities.
