Culture for Development Indicator Suite

15 May 2011, France

The UNESCO Culture for Development Indicator Suite is a pioneering research and advocacy initiative that aims to establish a set of indicators highlighting how culture contributes to development at national level fostering economic growth, and helping individuals and communities to expand their life choices and adapt to change. This project contributes to the implementation of Article 13 (Integration of Culture in Sustainable Development) of the Convention for the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.

Financed by the Spanish Agency of International Cooperation for Development (AECID), the project runs from 2009 to 2012 and combines research, implementation test phases in up to 20 countries from all regions and expert meetings in order to ensure the pertinence and credibility of the Suite.
