4.3 Local context and complementarity of the project with other regional, national and local policies/ measures/ programmes/ projects: 
The society and culture of Pakistan comprises numerous ethnic groups: the Punjabis, Kashmiris, Sindhis in east, Muhajirs, Makrani in the south; Baloch, Hazaras and Pashtun in the west; and the ancient Dardic, Wakhi, Baltistani and Burusho communities in the north. The culture of these Pakistani ethnic groups have been greatly influenced by many of its neighbours, such as the other South Asians, Turkic peoples as well as the peoples of Central Asia and the Middle East. The origins of the current Pakistani culture can be traced back to the Indus Valley civilization, which was contemporaneous with the ancient Egyptian and Sumerian civilizations, around 5,500 years ago. The region has formed a distinct unit within the main geographical complex of South Asia, the Middle East and Central Asia from the earliest times, and is analogous to the position of Afghanistan. There are differences among the ethnic groups in cultural aspects such as dress, food, and religion, especially where pre-Islamic customs differ from Islamic practices. Their cultural origins also reveal influences from far afield, including China, India and Afghanistan. Pakistan was the first region of South Asia to be fully impacted by Islam and has thus developed a distinct Islamic identity, historically different from areas further east. The culture of Pakistan seeks its influence from the cultures of India, Central Asia and the Middle East. Pakistani culture varies widely from Punjab and Sindh to Baluchistan and Khyber Pukhtunkhwa. Islam has played a pivotal role in shaping cultural life and has provided a pattern for molding lives according to the prescribed ways. Though, the majority of people of Pakistan are followers of Islam and Islamic traditions yet at the same time some local and foreign customs and traditions found a way in our daily lives and have now become a part of Pakistani culture. Following are some of the main festivals celebrated in Pakistan and the customs that are embedded with these festivals.

Currently the Pakistan government is finalizing its new cultural policy with a view to preserving the national heritage. The Unesco is cooperating with the Pakistan government in preserving its national heritage. The proposed draft of the new cultural policy would be submitted to the quarters concerned. The Punjab government is also taking solid measures for the preservation of the national heritage. Conservation and protection of World Heritage Sites located in Pakistan are of utmost priority and despite the negligible budget allocation for its biannual regular programme, UNESCO Islamabad has succeeded in creating a general awareness regarding the universal significance of these sites through advocacy, networking and generating extra-budgetary resources. Recognizing the urgency to protect and promote the invaluable cultural heritage of Pakistan, UNESCO and the Government of Pakistan have joined hands to map the cultural assets of the country. With generous support from the Government of Norway, a major initiative is being undertaken in the North West Frontier province, based on mapping out cultural resources, knowledge systems, from traditional arts and crafts to agricultural practices. The process will enable the documentation of the country's local traditions, skills and historic sites, some of which are fast deteriorating and disappearing. Moreover, it will provide real insight into the cultural diversity of the nation, its history, identity and knowledge, thereby, advancing the spirit of cultural pluralism
