Safeguarding at the international level: ICH Lists



The Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity

Inspired by the successes of the list created under the World Heritage Convention, and by the Proclamation of Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, the Convention establishes the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. This list will have a major role in ensuring better visibility of the intangible cultural heritage, in increasing awareness of its significance and also in encouraging dialogue in a spirit that is respectful of cultural diversity.
The List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding

The Intergovernmental Committee shall also establish, update and publish a List of Intangible Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding. The Committee, when drawing up the criteria for inscription on this list, will have to determine the conditions under which an element of the intangible cultural heritage will be considered “in need of urgent safeguarding”.
Programmes, projects and activities referred to in Article 18

In addition to the two lists, Article 18 of the Convention establishes that the Committee will periodically select and promote safeguarding programmes, projects and activities that it considers best reflect the principles and objectives of the Convention, taking into account the special needs of developing countries.
