Four years after the adoption of the United Nations 2030 Agenda, a new report, coordinated by the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) and United Cities and Local Government (UCLG), with the support of various organizations, including the IFCCD, reviews progress made in ensuring the place of culture at the heart of development policies.

Through a comprehensive analysis of Voluntary National Reviews (of countries) and Voluntary Local Reviews (of cities), it highlights great examples of governments that give culture the attention it deserves.

Yet it underlines that the challenge now is to generalize this good practice. To this end, the report makes a number of recommendations both to the culture sector itself, and to Member States. At the head will be a revitalized campaign – #culture2030goal. Watch this space!
