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.

The implementation of the UNESCO Culture|2030 Indicators trains and sensitizes national and municipal technical specialists, notably within statistical agencies or cultural institutions, in collecting and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data in the field of culture.
