Results of the UNESCO/EU Project on the inclusion of culture in development programmes
Through exchanges and debates, this high level session draws conclusions from the UNESCO/EU Project, to measure its results and impacts on the systems of governance for culture (partnerships between governments and civil society, inter-Ministerial coordination, innovative funding mechanisms, etc.) and the strengthening of human and institutional capacities in the field of public policies for the cultural and creative industries.
The discussion is based, in particular, on the effective results of the technical assistance missions. For example: adoption of the first strategy on creative industries in 2013 in Viet Nam; approbation of the creative industries policy in Seychelles and creation of an Agency specially dedicated to the creative industries. Experts and representatives from beneficiary countries share the good practices and lessons learned as well as the challenges they encountered.
This debate therefore allows us to draw from the lessons learnt in these four years of technical assistance, including methodologies, to reflect upon innovative modes of cooperation for development, and to outline prospects for future actions to ensure the sustainability of the results obtained since 2012.
