The third edition of the UNESCO World Forum on Culture and Cultural Industries (2- 4 October 2014), organized in cooperation with the Italian Government and with the support of the Tuscany Region and the Municipality of Florence, aims to ensure that culture is duly taken into account in international development policies and strategies, especially at a time when the post-2015 development agenda is being elaborated. The Florence Forum will build on the momentum generated by UNESCO’s recent achievements in this area, notably the 2013 Special Edition of the Creative Economy Report, co-published by UNESCO and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the three successive UN General Assembly resolutions on culture and development (2010, 2011 and 2013), which recognize the role of culture as an enabler and driver of the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development.

The Forum concluded with the adoption of the “Florence Declaration”, which proposes recommendations on maximizing the role of culture to achieve sustainable development and effective ways of integrating culture in the Post-2015 Development Agenda. This international encounter also provides a timely platform to showcase the results of the Post-2015 Dialogues on “Culture and Development” launched by the United Nations Development Group throughout 2014, under the co-leadership of UNESCO, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), on related topics, such as culture’s role in poverty reduction, education, gender equality and women’s empowerment, sustainable cities, the environment and reconciliation.
