Srinagar city

Srinagar city has been enlisted in UNESCO Creative Cities Network and it has enhanced the prestige of local Artisans & all Stakeholders who are connected with the trade.

The Dossier for the UNESCO creative cities network list had been prepared under the Restoration & Strengthening of Livelihoods.

The preparation of the Dossier was started under Jhelum TawiFlood Recovery Project in the year 2018 and a consultancy namely (Intach- Drona JV) was hired for the purpose after undertaking the consultation process with all the concerned stakeholders like Srinagar Municipal Corporation, Department of Industries & Commerce, Department of Handicrafts, Artisans & Craftsmen, trade bodies etc

Artisans of Kashmir have said that it’s a moment of immense satisfaction for the artisan community as the enlisting of Srinagar in UNESCO Creative Cities Network would bring Srinagar on the international platform and expand markets for the crafts.

The designation of Srinagar City in UNESCO Creative cities would give a big push to marketing of Kashmir as a major tourist destination globally and it  is expected that more and more  tourists across would visit Kashmir in future and give a much needed flip to the tourist industry here.

It is worth mentioning that only three cities at National level have made it to the UNESCO list and Srinagar is one of them.
