PR – The Grenada National Commission for UNESCO  is pleased to inform the public of UNESCO’s fifteenth call for funding requests to the International  Fund for Cultural Diversity (IFCD) . 

The IFCD invests in projects that lead to structural change through: 

  • The introduction and/or elaboration of policies and strategies that have a direct effect on the  creation, production, distribution of, and access to a diversity of cultural expressions,  including cultural goods, services, and activities. 
  • The reinforcement of human and institutional capacities of public sector and civil society  organisations deemed necessary to support viable local and regional cultural industries and  markets in developing countries. 

Projects supported by the IFCD cover a wide range of activities, from capacity-building and cultural  mapping to policy analysis and development, as well as entrepreneurship support and cultural industry  consolidation.
