- Cultural policies and measures increasingly aim at strengthening the value chain of creation, production, distribution/dissemination and access.
- A key advance achieved by the Convention was to broaden the understanding of cultural policy to include measures and mechanisms other than those normally included under the remit of ministries of culture.
- Process of reporting on cultural policies and measures is improving current communication and information systems among Parties to the Convention.
- Participatory models between civil society and public sector officials are required to produce solid evidence for policy monitoring and impact assessment.
- While the majority of reporting Parties have indicated reform to their relevant cultural policies and/or have created new measures and mechanisms as a result of adopting the Convention, more progress is required if the ambitious goals of the Convention are to be achieved
