14 Feb 2019 - Tehran ICH Centre Second International Photography Competition "Intangible Cultural Heritage and Youth" Second Call for Entries

  • Published in Other

Introduction

The Regional Research Centre for Safeguarding Intangible Cultural Heritage in West and Central Asia, Under the Auspices of UNESCO (Tehran ICH Centre) works towards achieving the following goals in the west and central Asian region:

-          to promote the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) - known as the 2003 Convention - and its implementation in west and central Asia;

  • to promote public awareness and expert capacities in the field of Intangible Cultural Heritage;
  • to strengthen capacities and cooperation in the region for identifying, inventorying documenting and studying Intangible Cultural Heritage to contribute to its safeguarding;
  • to promote peace and friendship and synergy in the region;

The geographical area assigned to Tehran ICH Centre includes 24 countries. These countries in alphabetic order are: Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, the Kyrgyz Republic, Lebanon, Oman, Pakistan, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, the United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, and Yemen.

“ICH has a deep importance in the everyday lives of people of our region. This competition is aimed at raising awareness of this and at broadening the identification of ICH through the efforts of amateur/professional photographers, while also underlining the important role photography plays in the documentation of ICH.”

Subject of the Competition

Next generations (especially the youth) are central to ICH in all its forms. When ICH is transmitted - that is, the art, knowledge, skills, meanings and values are transferred from one generation to the next (the youth) - it is young people who receive and absorb it. In this way, a sense of belonging is inculcated in young people, through which the future of ICH is made viable.

Everywhere in the world, the communities that are host to ICH, the groups of practitioners and knowledge bearers, have developed their own systems for transmitting their knowledge and skills. These have usually depended on oral methods and on direct practice under guidance and instruction.

The theme of the competition, 'Intangible Cultural Heritage and the Youth', intends especially to:

* show the presence and participation of young people in intangible cultural heritage, in all its forms;

* illustrate how the transmission of ICH is carried out;

* describe the diversity of the forms of ICH - such as artistic expression, handicraft and textile, the utilisation of nature's gifts, social institutions that organise communities and knowledge;

* highlight the participation of girls and women.

Competition Timeline

  • Entrants should send their competition entries through uploading them in the following address. http://www.tichct.ir/photocompetition up to 6 March 2019;
  • Final winners will be announced by early April 2019, and the awards ceremony will be held with prior notice.

14 Feb 2019 - UNESCO Tehran Cluster Office supported the first international workshop on “Earthen architecture, World Heritage City of Yazd: Conservation Problems and Challenges” held on 10-16 February 2019

  • Published in Other

UNESCO Tehran Cluster Office in cooperation with the Municipality of Yazd, Yazd University and the Iranian Cultural Heritage Handicrafts and Tourism Organization organized the first international workshop on “Earthen Architecture, World Heritage City of Yazd: Conservation Problems and Challenges” in Yazd, I.R. of Iran on 10-16 February 2019.

Three international renowned experts from International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM), International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) and CRAterre facilitated the workshop together with national experts from universities, ICHHTO and ICHHTO Research Institute.  The workshop was attended by thirty-three national and international participants.

Earthen Heritage includes a great variety of structures, ranging from mosques, palaces and granaries, to historic city centers, cultural landscapes and archaeological sites. Increasingly threatened by natural and human impacts such as floods and earthquakes, industrialization, urbanization, modern building technologies, disappearance of traditional conservation practices, etc. earthen structures deserve particular attention in terms of conservation and maintenance.

During the opening of the workshop, the Deputy for Cultural Heritage at the Iranian Cultural Heritage Handicrafts and Tourism Organization (ICHHTO) mentioned the importance of a municipality to host a cultural heritage event and thanked the efforts of the Mayor of Yazd for his efforts in protection of cultural heritage.

During his speech, Dr. Talebian pointed to the criteria iii (to bear a unique or at least exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition or to a civilization which is living or which has disappeared) and criteria iv (to be an outstanding example of a type of building, architectural or technological ensemble or landscape which illustrates (a) significant stage(s) in human history), based on which the Historic City of Yazd is registered on UNESCO World Heritage List.

Earthen architecture has become a symbolic expression of the human capacity to create an environment built by valorising locally available resources. The disappearance of the elements that compose this sizable architectural family world be an irreplaceable loss to humanity.

“We therefore urgently need to focus on ensuring its recognition and appreciation, its preservation, and the dissemination of good practices for its safeguarding.”, said Ms. Mohegh from UNESCO Tehran Cluster Office during her speech.

The six- day workshop will run until 16 February 2019 with several panel discussions on challenges of protection of earthen architecture and field visits.

12 Dec 2018 - UNESCO organized the 8th Asian G-WADI meeting and 2nd International Drought Initiative (IDI) expert group meeting

  • Published in Other

UNESCO in collaboration with the Regional Centre on Urban Water Management (RCUWM) under auspices of UNESCO, Khorasan Razavi Regional Water Authority and Ferdowsi University of Mashhad organized the 8th Asian G-WADI meeting and 2nd International Drought Initiative (IDI) expert group meeting in Mashhad from 10 to 12 December 2018.

Over 25 experts from the Asian G-WADI network and the International Drought Initiative (IDI) shared their knowledge and experience in adaptation to water scarcity and new advances in drought management. The three-day event brought together around 100 participants from Iran as well as other countries of the world such as Afghanistan, China, France, India, Mongolia, Oman, Thailand, Slovenia, Uzbekistan, and Vietnam. Representatives from international organizations active in the field of drought management such as the Integrated Drought Management Programme (IDMP) and the Global Water Partnership (GWP) were also present in the meeting.  

The meeting was opened by Dr. Mohammad Kafi, the dean of Ferdowsi University of Mashhad and Mr. Mohammad Alaee, the Director of Khorasan Razavi Regional Water Authority followed by a welcome message by Mr. Alexander Leicht, the Officer-in-Charge of the UNESCO Tehran Cluster Office. 

Dr. Kafi stressed the importance of collaboration between all scientific organizations to develop new approaches in adaptation to water scarcity in arid areas. The importance of collaborative approaches to achieve the adaptation plans objectives also emphasized by Mr. Alaee.

“Freshwater is an important resource for human health. According to the latest research, the global demand for water has been increasing at a rate of about 1% per year as a function of economic growth and changing consumption patterns, among other factors. The demand will continue to grow significantly over the next two decades, and so will the associated challenges.  It is therefore indeed timely to share our experiences in water management in countries which are facing particular challenges and to jointly explore solutions to water scarcity.” stated by Mr. Alexander Leicht during his remarks. He thanked the Ministry of Energy of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Iranian National Commission for UNESCO for their continued support and for the excellent cooperation between Iran and UNESCO in the various domains of natural sciences.

The objectives of the three-day event were to increase regional cooperation for adaptation to water scarcity in arid and semi-arid zones as well as developing synergies between active programmes in the field of drought management.

The Asian G-WADI Network was established as far back as March 2005 by representatives from Afghanistan, China, India, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan to respond to the urgent need for regional co-operation for the sustainable development of arid and semi-arid zones.

The International Drought Initiative (IDI) was approved at the 19th session of the International Hydrological Programme (IHP_ Intergovernmental Council in July 2010, in Paris, upon a proposal from Iran. The Regional Centre on Urban Water Management (RCUWM) in Tehran hosts the Secretariat of the Initiative. The Initiative provides a platform for networking and the dissemination of knowledge and information among stakeholders that are working to address droughts.
