The brochure on 'Intangible Cultural Heritage and Sustainable Development' highlights the significance of ICH for inclusive social development, environmental sustainability, inclusive economic development, peace and security. The brochure 'Intangible Cultural Heritage and Gender' highlights the mutual relationship between gender norms and ICH and emphasises that understanding the intimacy between ICH and gender is important for effective ICH safeguarding and gender equality.
