Main feature of the measure:

These provisions are concrete actions that allow Colombian public policymakers to be informed about the dynamics of cultural sectors to undertake public policies and programs that improve the resources and actions applied in the cultural field, and positively impact Colombian society with the provision and valuation of cultural services. 

In addition, comparability in figures among Andean Community of Nations (CAN) countries, achieved through the homogenization of statistics in the cultural sector, allows to improve methodologies and make cross-country comparisons, strengthening the information that is provided to Colombians regarding these issues, which in turn can strengthen the exchange of cultural goods and services between the region, generating an economic, social and cultural impact.

A coordination strategy within the framework of the CAN countries, which combines different mechanisms of statistical measurement and records the development of the cultural and creative industries, as well as the processes associated with heritage at the national and regional levels.

Financial resources allocated to implement the measure:

128,797 USD - resources obtained by a FEMCIDI - OAS call for the four countries.
