Call for Applications to Promote NGOs’ ICH Safeguarding Activities in the Asia-Pacific Region

The International Information and Networking Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region under the auspices of UNESCO (ICHCAP) is undertaking an open call for applications to find partner organizations for a project to promote  ICH safeguarding activities of NGOs in the Asia-Pacific region.

To share community-based NGO activities and experiences, ICHCAP has worked with NGOs contributing to achieve the UN sustainable development goals by collecting case studies, supporting and promoting the NGOs’ activities. In 2019 ICHCAP would like to find ICH NGOs in the Asia-Pacific region that are working to achieve SDG 2: end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture.

Organizations wishing to participate in this project should fill out the application form in the attachment and submit it by e-mail to ngo.ichcap@gmail.com by 19 April 2019.

The selected NGOs must submit a paper that includes their safeguarding activity case studies to ICHCAP by October 2019. The manuscript must be written in English with at least 10,000 words (about 25 pages of A4). Image files should be submit separately.

An honorarium will be provided after submitting the final paper, and papers of the selected NGO will be promoted through a special publication.

For inquiries, please contact Ms. Min Jung KIM, Programme Specialist: Telephone: +82-63-230-9738; e-mail: ngo.ichcap@gmail.com.
