The project aims to initiate a sub-regional cooperation platform to support seven countries in southern Africa in their efforts to safeguard the living heritage present in their territories. Consolidating the results of previous Flanders funded projects, this platform will be driven by the National Intangible Cultural Heritage Committees or the bodies responsible for intangible cultural heritage in the beneficiary countries. The project will pay due attention to the adequacy of institutional environments, abilities to set up or revise legislative and policy frameworks and the availability of national expertise. Concrete outputs of the project include a pool of resource persons operational in the region and the revisions of policy or legislative frameworks.
