ICHCAP to Hold the Second Preparatory Committee Meeting for Silk Roads ICH Networking


On 26 May 2021, ICHCAP and its collaborative partners IICAS and the KF Korea-Central Asia Cooperation Forum Secretariat will hold the second preparatory committee meeting for the Silk Roads ICH Network Program. As a follow-up to the first meeting held on 30 March 2021, the second meeting will cover governance, membership eligibility, and inaugural events, among other topics.

The preparatory committee was put together on the heels of last year’s Webinar: Life, Environment, and ICH along the Silk Roads and Strategic Meeting on Silk Roads ICH Networking. Last year’s events spawned our intent to develop a networking system along the Silk Roads to promote related ICH along the region. As such, ICHCAP and our partners are looking forward to launching the new network later this year. These preparatory committee meetings are essential to iron out the details in developing the new network. Following the final preparatory meeting to be held later this year, the preparatory committee will be transformed into an oversight committee for the official network.

The network is scheduled to be officially launched in the autumn of 2021, and we look forward to wide participation of stakeholders from across the Silk Roads region, especially those along the steppe route. ICHCAP will make an official announcement when the network opens, and we look forward to wide participation.
