The fourth session of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage takes place in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) from 28 September to 2 October 2009. The Committee will, among other things, inscribe the first intangible cultural heritage elements on the Urgent Safeguarding List and the Representative List, as well as select safeguarding programmes, projects and activities that it considers best reflect the principles and objectives of the Convention. One hundred and eleven nominations for the Representative List have been examined from 11 to 15 May 2009 by a subsidiary body of the Committee. In Abu Dhabi, the Committee will decide whether the elements shall or shall not be inscribed.
