Ethnic minority groups in Congjiang, a beautiful place in southeast China, face a serious dilemma. People are poor and work hard to earn a living, but have a rich cultural heritage threatened by modern influences. The Beijing Cultural Heritage Protection Center and UNESCO are implementing the China Culture and Development Partnership Framework to assist ethnic minority groups in their cultural, socio-economic and political life and empower them to manage cultural resources and benefit from culture-based economic development.
