Culture as Goal in the Post-2015 Development Agenda

The International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA) worked closely with Agenda 21 for Culture, the International Federation of Coalitions for Cultural Diversity, and Culture Action Europe to draft Culture as Goal in the Post-2015 Development Agenda, available on the IFACCA website.

The paper suggests items to use as a starting point in developing specific targets under the Post-2015 Development Agenda. These include for instance the importance of (a) integrating culture into all development policies and programs; (b) ensuring equal access to and participation in culture to all through the elaboration of specific policies and legal frameworks for indigenous peoples, minorities, women, and youth; and (c) developing and implementing national strategies on cultural diversity.
