Project / Programme Title
Support for the establishment of a national craft council in Mozambique
Brief Project Description
Mozambique is a country rich in cultural diversity, creativity and cultural expressions all of which have great potential for building economy as Mozambique works toward achieving the Millennium Development Goals, specifically the first goal aimed at eradicating poverty. The craft sector is an important cultural expression and creative industry in Mozambique and one which the Government of Mozambique is giving priority. Both the government and civil society are providing support to the development of this sector, yet there is a lack of coordination and a unifying body where issues related to the sector can be addressed not only on a national level but on an international platform. One of the initiatives that have been identified by both government and civil society is the creation of a National Crafts Council. UNESCO Maputo aims to support the development of the craft sector in Mozambique through technical assistance in the establishment of a National Crafts Council. The activity will support the organization and facilitation of stakeholder meetings to elaborate the mission and overall role of the NCC of Mozambique leading up to the identification of the Board and subsequent elaboration and submission of legal documents. This activity will work closely with the MDG-F Culture and Development Joint Programme, that will support the second phase of support to the Council, that is the development of its Strategic Plan for the next five years.
