Contribution to the IFCD
The purpose of IFCD is to promote sustainable development and poverty reduction in developing countries that are Parties to the 2005 Convention.
IFCD supports to projects that aim at fostering the emergence of a dynamic cultural sector, primarily through activities facilitating the introduction and/or elaboration of policies and strategies that protect and promote diversity of cultural expressions as well as reinforcement of institutional infrastructures supporting viable cultural industries.
According to the Article 18 of the Convention Parties are endeavoured to provide voluntary contributions on a regular basis towards the implementation of this Convention.

Ukraine’s annual contribution to the Fund is approx. 3600 USD
