EU-UNESCO – CCIs & South-South Cooperation

In 2018, the European Union and the UNESCO launched an international call for applications supporting new regulatory frameworks to strengthen the cultural and creative industries (CCIs) and promote South-South cooperation.

This programme aims to support developing countries (Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Gabon, Georgia, Jamaica, Mexico, Namibia, Palestine, Panama, South Sudan, Uganda, Zimbabwe) to:

  • Design, adapt and/or implement regulatory frameworks (laws, strategies, policies and measures) for the CCIs, including intellectual property rights related to CCIs.
  • Strengthen skills and capacities to support long-term cultural policy development and implementation that support the CCIs.
  • Create peer-to-peer mechanisms to strengthen institutional capacities for the CCIs through South-South cooperation activities.

This programme will end in 2021.
