Information sharing and transparency stands at the heart of the Convention. Upon ratification, countries commit to submit every four years “periodic reports” on the policies and measures they have adopted, and challenges encountered in implementing the Convention. These reports are key instruments for civil society to engage with government officials in assessing progress made to protect and promote the diversity of cultural expressions.

The ideas and opinions expressed in the periodic reports are those of the submitting governments, Parties to the 2005 Convention. They are not necessarily those of UNESCO and do not commit the Organization.

 

Following the adoption by the 7th Conference of Parties of the 2005 Convention in June 2019 of the revised Operational Guidelines on Article 9 “Information Sharing and Transparency”, a new online form for periodic reporting is under development. It will be available in autumn 2019.

If your Quadrennial Periodic Report (QPR) is due in 2020 (check your submission deadline here), please note that you will need to use the new online form for submission. However, you can start preparing your Periodic Report offline and the Civil Society Organisation form

The new online form will allow to better monitor the implementation of the 2005 Convention and will serve as a tool to inform the Policy Monitoring Platform and the third Global Report, to be published in June 2021.

Should you need any further information, please write to reports2005@unesco.org.

Submit your Periodic Report

Parties to the 2005 Convention have committed themselves to systematically collect information and data, statistics and best practices on policies and measures that promote the diversity of cultural expressions. They also committed to increase transparency by sharing and exchanging this information at the international level, namely through quadrennial periodic reports.

In accordance with Article 9 of the Convention, each Party submits its periodic report on the implementation of the Convention every four years for its examination by the Conference of Parties.

Periodic reports provide qualitative and quantitative information on policies and measures Parties have taken to protect and promote the diversity of cultural expression at both the national and the international level, as well as on their impact and results. Periodic report should be elaborated through participative processes involving the concerned public authorities and civil society organizations

To complete the periodic report, please follow the “Framework for Quadrennial Periodic Report on Measures to Protect and Promote the Diversity of Cultural Expressions” annexed to the Operational Guidelines of the Convention on Article 9 “Information Sharing and Transparency”.

Periodic reports should be submitted through the online form. 

For further guidance and information, consult the Frequently Asked Questions, the innovative practices and the Policy Monitoring Platform.

For details for when each Party’s next report is due, consult the Available reports and deadlines.
