Has the implementation of the policy/measure been evaluated?: 
NO
If yes, what are the main conclusions/recommendations?: 

There is no evaluation of the Intercultural Resources Center; however, the General Directorate of Intercultural Citizenship has noticed that:

* This is the only web platform in the country that gathers the main bibliographic material of Peru and the region on interculturality, cultural diversity, indigenous peoples, Afro-Peruvian population and ethnic-racial discrimination.

* Although the platform mainly seeks to enhance the competencies of public workers on intercultural issues, it is designed for the use of anyone, and not only in Peru.

* The material included in the platform is diverse, ranging from regulations, informative materials, publications and training material, to audiovisual material. Likewise, the platform is not restricted to disseminating only State material; it actually disseminates any type of academic material.

* All the materials gathered on this website are for massive and free use.
* The platform also provides information on activities carried out by the Ministry of Culture on the topics covered and provides links to resource centers on interculturality and related topics, as well as to national and international entities addressing these topics.
* This tool is designed not only to have knowledge of the latest publications and resources that are carried out in the country and the region on these topics, but also to promote reflection and debate on these matters.
Therefore the following is recommended:
* Disseminate the tool internally, within the Ministry of Culture itself to prevent discrimination and promote the approaches promoted by the ministry in its institutional management.
* Promote the use and application of the tool at an inter-institutional level, in the different State institutions.
* Disseminate the platform in the media.
* Create a slogan or catchy name to the "CRI" platform so that it generates a more meaningful and friendly message.
* The platform must be updated periodically, not only with the resources of the Ministry of Culture, but also of other sources.
* Likewise, since this website includes a section entitled "Activities", this one should be kept up-to-date with the main activities carried out on the issue of interculturality.
