UNESCO International Fund for Cultural Diversity | call for applications
UNESCO launches the third call for applications for funding from the International Fund for Cultural Diversity (IFCD).
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.
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.
All funding requests are to be sent to the relevant National Commissions for UNESCO or other official channels designated by the States Parties, who will then submit them to the Secretariat of the Convention. INGOs should submit applications directly to the Secretariat of the Convention if their programme/project proposals are supported in writing by the States Parties concerned.
Applicants are to consult their National Commissions for UNESCO 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, midnight CET.
SEE UNESCO IFCD website for all the relevant application details.
This is the third IFCD call. Information on the 48 selected projects in the previous rounds can be found on the website. Only TWO of the 48 projects are from ASEM countries. Eligible ASEM countries for the IFCD are: Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Mongolia, Vietnam.
