Culture for Development Indicators (project)

Ministry of Culture
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

The UNESCO Culture for Development Indicators (CDIS) is an advocacy and policy tool developed between 2009 and 2014 within the framework of the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions. The CDIS combines knowledge from leading experts with a fieldproven methodology adapted to the context and needs of the low-middle income countries. Its main objectives are to:
* Provide evidence-based justification for the inclusion of culture in national and international development strategies
and plans;
* Gather new data for informed policies and monitoring systems for culture;
* Build capacities in data collection and analysis on culture and development;
* Promote awareness on culture's role in sustainable development through participative interinstitutional dialogue; and
* Foster a comparable understanding at the international level.

The project was implemented in Romania between 2017-2019.

What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?: 

Out of the 22 proposed indicators, Romania calculated 21 plus an additional number of 2 indicators (one alternative and one additional). The indicators shed light into the contribution of culture in the context of the goals set by the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.
