PDF icon Investing in culture : UNESCO/EU Project

This publication features the outcomes of the flagship project “Expert Facility to strengthen the system of governance of culture in developing countries”.

This project, funded by the EU and implemented by UNESCO from 2010 to 2015, served to make the principles and objectives of the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, operational at national levels. In addition to the creation of an Expert Facility of 30 international experts specialized in the field covered by the 2005 Convention, it helped to support and assist 13 countries (Argentina, Barbados, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Haiti, Honduras, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Niger, Seychelles and Viet Nam) in the design and implementation of public polices for the cultural and creative industries.
