Millennium Development Goals: Culture for Development

UNESCO has long advocated that sustainable development strategies sensitive to cultural assets are the key to addressing the interlinked economic, social and environmental problems confronting all societies today. Seizing the opportunity to revisit the international development paradigm, UNESCO has decided to spearhead a high-level round table on Culture for Development during the UN Summit on the Millennium Development Goals (New York, 20-22 September 2010). The Outcome document adopted by the Summit recognizes now explicitly the contribution of culture to development and to the MDGs achievement.
