This case study will focus on UNESCO’s cross-disciplinary programme spanning the sectors of communication and culture, “Information and Communication Technologies for Intercultural Dialogue: Developing Communication Capacities of Indigenous Peoples (ICT4ID).” It will show a general overview of the five ongoing pilot projects. This programme aims at preserving indigenous peoples’ cultural resources by fostering access to ICT. These are the expected results: • Indigenous community representatives trained in media content production and ICT use. • Indigenous cultural content produced for television, radio and news media. • Awareness raised at an international level of indigenous creativity. • Advocacy made for the importance of cultural diversity and its expression through ICTs. • Reinforcement of intercultural dialogue through the inclusion of indigenous peoples’ cultural expressions in mainstream knowledge societies. In order to achieve these objectives, the programme has begun to implement five pilot projects worldwide. These five projects can be divided into two groups: the first group of projects focusing on the audiovisual and the second group consisting of two projects related to multimedia.
