International Fund for Cultural Diversity
Call for Applications
UNESCO has launched the third call for applications for funding from the International Fund for Cultural Diversity (IFCD). The purpose of the IFCD is to promote sustainable development and poverty reduction in developing and least-developed countries that are Parties to the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions. The IFCD supports projects that aim to foster the emergence of a dynamic cultural sector, primarily by facilitating the introduction of new cultural policies and cultural industries, or strengthening existing ones.
Applicants are to consult their National Commissions for UNESCO (www.unesco.org/en/national-commissions) to find out about the deadline for receipt of applications at the national level. The deadline for the Secretariat of the Convention to receive funding applications from National Commissions or INGOs is 30 June 2012.
