UNESCO: International Fund for Cultural Diversity (IFCD): Fifth Call for Funding Request

The IFCD provides support to projects that aim to foster the emergence of a dynamic cultural sector, primarily through activities facilitating the introduction and/or elaboration of policies and strategies that have a direct effect on the creation, production, distribution of and access to the diversity of cultural expressions as well as the reinforcement of institutional infrastructures supporting viable local and regional cultural industries.

Since 2010, the IFCD is providing around USD 4.6 million in funding for 71 projects in 43 developing countries, covering a wide range of areas, from the development and implementation of cultural policies, to capacity-building of cultural entrepreneurs, mapping of cultural industries and the creation of new cultural industry business models.

Public authorities/institutions and NGOs from developing countries that are Parties to the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, as well as international non-governmental organizations (INGOs), are eligible to apply.
