There is a possibility the cultural expression owned by one province is also owned by another province We have also to keep in mind that one cultural expression can spread in various geographical boundaries in different provinces. The fundaments of the nomination of cultural heritage is done with the geo cultural view and not the geo political concerns. The geo cultural view thus enables various countries to manage and protect cultural heritage together more efficiently and effectively. Also it enables the process of nomination as a collaboration to the level of UNESCO. This endorsement of collaboration in cultural heritage has significantly made cultural diplomacy and safeguarding a possibility. An effort to guard an in-material treasure is usually difficult since cultural heritage is identified as something owned by people in the past and is considered irrelevant to current times. That is the reason as we all know, UNESCO as an cultural official worked organization has felt the need for an international level convention for safeguarding intangible cultural heritage that is indeed in danger of disappearing and to protect the heritage.
