Stakeholders

While relying in priority on national statistical institutes, the UNESCO Culture|2030 Indicators will seek to bring together a variety of data sources, including from different ministries, observatories and public agencies, information systems for culture, specific barometers, specific national and regional surveys, and professional volunteer organization. The project will also support countries to enhance existing data within the UNESCO Culture Conventions periodic reports as well as the cultural data produced by UIS.

This process is highly collaborative engaging a wide of range of stakeholders involved in the policy spectrum, Ministries, departments, agencies operating in the four thematic dimensions of the framework (e.g. culture, development and planning, education, trade and industry, gender etc.), culture related organizations and networks, civil society and professional organizations, research institutions including academia and national institutes.

Implementation of the UNESCO Culture|2030 Indicators in Bosnia and Herzegovina contributed to the development of the SDG indicator 11.4.1 “Strengthen efforts to protect and preserve the world's cultural and natural heritage”. In June 2022, UNESCO Institute of Statistics published the Results of the 2021 Survey of Expenditure on Cultural and Natural Heritage (SDG Indicator 11.4.1) based on the replies of 45 countries worldwide, including Bosnia and Herzegovina. Authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina have recognised the importance of this indicator by including it in the “Framework for the Realization of the Sustainable Development Goals in Bosnia and Herzegovina” founding its place under the Smart Growth pillar which aims to ensure that innovative and productive ideas are transformed into products and services that can create high-paying jobs and accelerate economic growth, while preserving natural capital and reducing social inequalities
