http://www.unesco.org/culture/ich/en/lists/ The Committee meets annually to evaluate nominations proposed by States Parties to the 2003 Convention and decide whether or not to inscribe those cultural practices and expressions of intangible heritage on the Convention’s Lists. The List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding (see criteria ) is composed of intangible heritage elements that concerned communities and States Parties consider require urgent measures to keep them alive. Inscriptions on this List help to mobilize international cooperation and assistance for stakeholders to undertake appropriate safeguarding measures. During the period from 2009 to 2012, the Committee inscribed 31 elements on this List. The Register of Best Safeguarding Practices (see criteria ) contains programs, projects and activities that best reflect the principles and the objectives of the Convention.
