Are you a public institution in the sphere of arts or culture, or a local or international non-governmental organization (NGO) with a project that will make a significant contribution to the creative economy? Do you have a project that will make a significant contribution to the creative economy? This is a phone call for you! The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) invests in programs that result in structural transformation through:

Policies and strategies that are implemented and/or developed in order to directly influence the creation, production, distribution and accessibility of a diverse range of cultural expressions, including goods, services, and activities; the development of human resources and institutional capacities in the public sector and civil society organizations, which are deemed necessary in order to support viable local and regional cultural markets in developing countries; the establishment and/or expansion of cultural industries and markets in developing countries.

About the Scholarship:

It was in the aftermath of World Wars I and II that the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) was established. Nation governments were united in their clear belief that political and economic agreements alone would not be sufficient to bring about a durable peace. Peace, it was believed, could only be achieved through the moral and intellectual solidarity of humanity as a whole. The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) attempts to develop networks across nations by: The goal of mobilizing for education is to ensure that every child, regardless of gender, has access to high-quality education as a fundamental human right and as a precondition for human development. Increasing intercultural understanding by trying to safeguard cultural assets and develop support for cultural variety are two important goals. The World Heritage concept was developed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization to safeguard sites of extraordinary universal value Pursuing scientific collaboration means developing relationships between governments and society through projects such as tsunami early warning systems and trans-boundary water management agreementsProtecting freedom of expression is a precondition for democracy, growth, and human dignity, and it must be prioritized. The message of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization has never been more persuasive. Our ability to devise policies that are comprehensive in nature and capable of taking into account the social, environmental, and economic components of sustainable development is crucial. Using this type of thinking, the Organization can reinforce its fundamental beliefs while also strengthening its role: Intercultural dialogue is essential in a globalized world with interconnected societies if we are to live together while also acknowledging our differences. In a globalized world with interconnected societies, intercultural dialogue is essential if we are to live together while also acknowledging our differences. Nations’ ability to understand and anticipate changes in the environment — through education, scientific research, and the sharing of knowledge — is critical in an uncertain world. In this context, the future of nations depends not only on their economic capital or natural resources, but also on their collective ability to understand and anticipate environmental changes. As nations struggle to remain resilient and stable in an increasingly uncertain environment, they rely heavily on the educational, scientific, and cultural fabric of their society. Because of the rise of the creative economy and knowledge societies, as well as the growth of the internet, full involvement of all people in a changing global public space is an essential condition for peace and progress in today’s linked world The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is known as the “intellectual” agency. People must rely on the power of intelligence to innovate, extend their horizons, and maintain the promise of a new humanism at a time when the world is looking for new methods to establish peace and sustainable development. The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) exists to bring this creative intellect to life, because it is in the minds of men and women that the circumstances for peace and sustainable development must be created. The basic objective of the United States Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which was inspired by the Second World War, is to foster peace, sustainable development, and human rights by facilitating collaboration and conversation among nations. A total of five key program areas are used to achieve this goal: education; natural sciences; social/human sciences; culture; communication/information; and communication/information technology. UNESCO finances initiatives that aim to raise literacy, provide technical training and education, advance science, defend independent media and press freedom, preserve regional and cultural history, and promote cultural diversity, to name a few objectives. Its activities have expanded over the years as a focal point for world culture and science; for example, it aids in the translation and dissemination of world literature, assists in the establishment and protection of World Heritage Sites of cultural and natural significance, works to close the global digital divide, and works to build inclusive knowledge societies through information and communication. UNESCO has undertaken a number of initiatives and worldwide movements, such as Education for All, to further the advancement of its basic objectives, including the promotion of gender equality. The General Conference of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which meets biannually to define the agency’s programs and budget, governs the organization. It also elects members of the Executive Board, which oversees the organization’s operations, and appoints the Director-General, who serves as the organization’s senior administrator every four years. As a member of the United Nations Sustainable Development Group, an alliance of UN agencies and organizations dedicated to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, UNESCO works to achieve these goals. A specialised agency of the United Nations (UN), the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is tasked with promoting world peace and security through international cooperation in education, the arts, science, and culture. In French, the organization is known as the Organisation des Nations unies pour la science et la culture (Organisation des Nations unies for education, science, and culture). It comprises 193 member states and 11 associate members, as well as partners in the non-governmental, intergovernmental, and business sectors. It is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. A global organization with headquarters in the World Heritage Centre in Paris, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has 53 regional field offices and 199 national commissions that help it carry out its global purpose. The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) was established in 1945 as the successor organization to the League of Nations’ International Committee on Intellectual Cooperation. The agency’s goals, governing structure, and functioning framework are all established under the agency’s constitution.
