Title of the section: 
How does this project contribute to the implementation of the 2005 Convention?
Short Description: 
  • Contributes to evidence-based cultural policy making in Morocco – the mapping exercise and the submission of recommendations to cultural policy-makers are instrumental in ensuring the implementation of an effective cultural policy in Morocco. 
  • Promotes information sharing and transparency – the publication and dissemination of the results of the mapping exercise is expected to reveal important information about the economic structure and the dynamics of the cultural industries in Morocco, which have not yet been explored. 
  • Fosters cooperation and partnerships among governmental and civil society actors in cultural industries – the participation and involvement of a broad array of stakeholders across sectors highlights the inclusive approach of the project and strengthens the role of civil society in policy making and implementation.
