Résumé exécutif: 

Given the cultural diversity and pluralistic identity of India, the protection and promotion of diversity of cultural expressions is an indispensable part of all our cultural policies. The Government of India constantly endeavours to foster an environment where culture thrives within the framework of democracy, social cohesion and mutual respect.

Since 2015, when the last quadrennial periodic report was submitted, India has updated many of its existing cultural policies and programmes as well as introduced new measures to support creativity and innovation in the culture sector. Rapid technological advancements have brought a paradigm shift in the way culture is produced and consumed globally. Thus, all cultural policies and measures are implemented in India keeping in view this radical change. Special emphasis has been put on digitizing our cultural resources, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

India also recognizes the vital role that culture plays in building a sustainable society and instilling cultural sensitivity in the youth of the country remains one of our priorities. Continuous efforts are made to incorporate art and culture in educational curriculum and all other realms of life. Special initiatives are also undertaken to ensure that vulnerable groups and differently abled citizens have proper access to culture.

Through the efforts of our nodal agencies, mobility of artists and cultural professionals is facilitated nationally and internationally. This includes their participation in various cultural festivals and capacity-building programmes tailored to specific requirements. It is also our constant effort to ensure that gender equality is maintained in the field of culture through equal participation, no discrimination and equal access to facilities.

Despite the achievements, significant challenges remain ahead, not just for India but for the global community at large. India will continue to reflect on the impact of COVID-19 on the culture sector and further our best attempts to mitigate it. We look forward to sharing our best practices and learning from the innovative tools implemented by other State Parties of the Convention in future.

The following have been the significant achievements of NCAA during its pilot phase (3 April 2014 – 31 March 2019): • NCAA has been able to set a benchmark in terms of following digitization and metadata standards that are accepted as best practices globally. The digitization standards pursued by NCAA are in parity with those recommended by the International Association of Sound & Audiovisual Archives (IASA) and its metadata standards are based on the extended Dublin Core metadata schema which is used by Archives, Galleries, Libraries and Museums worldwide. • For the first time ever, NCAA has managed to bring together a total of twenty-nine (29) governmental and non-governmental institutions from across the country in order to create an integrated platform – an archive of archives – thus catapulting its Partnering Institutions to the next stage in the domain of interoperable audiovisual archiving. • A total of 31,500 hours of unpublished, non-commercial audio and video recordings have been digitized from the repositories of the twenty-nine (29) Partnering Institutions of NCAA. Following metadata verification and enrichment, over 25,000 hours of audiovisual resources have already been made accessible in the public domain at http://ncaa.gov.in/repository. The web portal of NCAA has attracted nearly 50,00,000 (50 Lakh) hits since August 2017, when it was placed in the public domain. • A unique Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) advisory has been generated as part of the implementation of the pilot phase of NCAA. This has been a milestone in itself given that it has led to the creation of detailed guidelines that can be followed by cultural institutions across the country to gain clarity about the possibility of digital outreach of their resources in the public domain. • NCAA has drafted detailed policy documents encapsulating its own functioning, covering various aspects of its implementation including its vision and mission and aspects related to collection, digital preservation, storage, designated user community and access. • NCAA underwent three stages of audit conducted by Primary Trustworthy Digital Repository Authorisation Body Ltd., United Kingdom and became the world’s first Trustworthy Digital Repository, gaining the certification on 17 November 2017 for an initial period of three years. This is a landmark achievement for India as a whole, given that the ISO 16363:2012 certification indicates the ability of NCAA to demonstrate trustworthy and responsible digital data management. Further, it is demonstrative of an adherence to quality and consistency, respect for data integrity, and a commitment to long-term preservation of and access to the audiovisual resources that have been entrusted to the care of NCAA. • NCAA has conducted two (2) national-level training programmes in collaboration with acknolwledged leaders in the domain of audiovisual archiving with a view to skill and capacity building among its Partnering Institutions. • To further the IGNCA’s effort to conduct professional diploma courses, NCAA is also conducting an elective course on Audiovisual Archiving as part of the yearlong diploma in Cultural Informatics, which has been approved by the All India Council for Technical Education. • NCAA has created Sangam, a mobile and web application, envisaged as an outreach tool for its rich digital repository of audio recordings. Conceived as an aural confluence of the various musical forms of India, it is envisioned as a one-stop virtual destination for connoisseurs of classical, folk and popular styles of music alike. Sangam features over 2500 tracks organised across metadata fields such as artist, prahar, deity, keywords, etc. offering users free streaming within a musically diverse, well-designed, ads-free experience.

It was set up by the Sangeet Natak Akademi as one of its constituent units in 1959. In 1975, it became an independent entity and was registered as an autonomous organization under the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860, fully financed by the Ministry of Culture, Government of India. Training in the School is highly intensive and is based on a thorough, comprehensive, carefully planned syllabus which covers every aspect of theatre and in which theory is related to practice. As a part of their training, students are required to produce plays which are then performed before the public. The syllabus takes into account the methods of great theatre personalities who have shaped contemporary theatre in all its variety. The systematic study and practical performing experience of Sanskrit drama, modern Indian drama, traditional Indian theatre forms, Asian drama and western dramatic protocols give the students a solid grounding and a wide perspective in the art of theatre. One of the main annual festivals organized by NSD is the Bharat Rang Mahotsav (BRM) which was started with the aim of contributing to the growth and development of theatre across the country. From being a national festival that presented the work of some of the most creative theatre artists in India, it has grown into an international event, hosting theatre companies from around the world. The Bharat Rang Mahotsav is today acknowledged as one of the largest theatre festivals of Asia dedicated solely to theatre. In addition to the national and international productions/ performances that are staged during the Festival, the fare also includes exhibitions, conferring of awards/tributes, interactive sessions with directors and performers for the general public and professionals, photographic exhibitions featuring landmark productions, open forums and meetings and a shorter festival in another city to which some of the productions travel. Additionally, NSD also organizes 'Allied Events Activities' such as World Theatre Forum, National Seminars, Masterclasses etc. in which artists, theoreticians and experts from the field of theatre and its allied arts are invited to participate. In the last four years, NSD has also hosted the 9th Asia Pacific Bond Theatre Schools Festival and Directors' Meet, 2016, and 8th Theatre Olympics in 2018. As part of its mandate to strengthen education and training in theatre NSD regularly organizes and takes part in exchange programs for its students and faculty, both nationally and internationally.

FICCI has brought out few important reports mapping the sector and doing extensive surveys and interviews. The reports include Creative Arts in India – Theatre, Dance and Craft Industries (2016); Visual Arts Industries in India (2018) and Taking the Temperature Report (in association with British Council and ArtX, 2020) FICCI has worked across the sector with artists and artisans, organizations to understand their needs and concerns of the moment and shared recommendations with Ministry of Culture, Government of India. Some of these recommendations have got acceptance and some are under consideration. The key recommendations are as follows : • SOP’s for Opening of Cultural and Heritage Spaces in light of COVID pandemic. • Basic financial support to artists and artisans and access to free medical care. • Reduce to the lowest slab all taxes to artists, arts organizations, and cultural and artistic products. • GST waivers on artworks, rationalize import-export of the artworks. All investments in any activity dedicated to the support and promotion of art and culture should be able to avail of tax rebates. • Prioritizing art and culture development in Smart Cities and Tier II Cities. Inadequate Infrastructure has emerged as the biggest challenge whether exhibition spaces, performance spaces, rehearsal spaces or spaces for community workshops, training, selling of handicrafts and handlooms, etc. • Easing of permissions has emerged as the top most regulatory support required from the Government for the growth of the creative arts industry. Create single window permission and licensing for cultural performances and events at the state level. • Ensure Ministry of Culture and all its institutions provides financial support and fees to artists to record their programs and upload them on the Sangeet Natak Akademi platform. • Have state and central Emporia to buy the available inventory by artists and artisans.

Sahapedia

Nom des OSC chargées de la mise en œuvre de la mesure/initiative: 
Sahapedia
Décrivez les principales caractéristiques de la mesure/initiative: 
Sahapedia, is an open online resource on the arts, cultures and heritage of India and broadly South Asia. The website, sahapedia.org, maps out diverse fields such as indigenous and classical knowledge systems, visual and material culture, performing arts, literature and languages, rituals and practices, built spaces, natural heritage. Considering the wealth of knowledge and complex histories about these fields, Sahapedia presents well-curated multimedia modules that provide definitive overviews paired with photographs, recorded interviews, audio-visual resources, and an extensive bibliography on each topic it deals with. Sahapedia distils scholarly knowledge and makes it accessible to a larger public readership by collaborating with various research institutions and experts to provide a common platform to initiate new conversations and deliberate on older debates within the field. Some of the key features of Sahapedia are: An inclusive project: Sahapedia is about providing an opportunity to learn about things that are alien to our backgrounds. We are also trying to resist any kind of monoculture of the mind – wherever it comes from. It’s not even an “ours” and “theirs” division-- for instance, the melam traditions of Kerala may be as distant from you as flamenco – but it’s something to document, for those might want to know. Presenting complexity: Sahapedia is not merely a reference book or encyclopaedia, it is a living and unfolding multimedia project. It is an attempt to create a pluralist dialogue between artists, scholars, practitioners, IT professionals, designers et al. Sahapedia is curated by its experts and editors, and collaborates with institutions like the National Centre for Performing Arts, or the National Museum of Natural History, or Sangeet Natak Akademi. It has created networks of scholars as well as doers, and look for reliable voices to speak about their passions or practices. Micro-funding stakeholders: In the process of creating its resource, Sahapedia has funded more than 2500 experts, institutions and ideas across its domains. So far they have funded more than 300 fellows, 70+ photography grantees, 250+ walk leaders and facilitators and the numbers are growing every day. Documenting and archiving: This is one of Sahapedia’s main aims. There are no distinctions like classical and folk and popular – it is interested not just in what is fading away, but also in what’s being born – which is why it invites people to share their enthusiasm, their knowledge, their photographs and videos, and to truly interact around what they like. In that sense, Sahapedia could only have been an internet platform. To provide a few examples, it has explored Goan musical theatre, Tiatr, it asks textile experts about Ajrakh, the sacred cloth of Sindh and its varieties, it explores what Charles Correa brought to modern architecture. It has modules on Kashmiri Shaivism and Sufi traditions, it also looks at street theatre and Kathakali. Curating experiences: Through documentation of the lives of living treasures of cultural knowledge, through public talks, through mapping spaces for their cultural significance, taking up heritage walks across the country, holding workshops, conferences and performances, supporting early and mid-career professionals through grants and fellowships. Digital future for culture: The power of digital technologies to enhance experiences and promote better understanding in the field of culture has not been explored to its full potential yet. Sahapedia believes that thoughtful integration of digital technology can make this field both democratic and experiential in the best manner possible. Sahapedia seeks to leverage current and future technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning (in Indian languages), meta tagging that does not assume Western systems of thought as default, and digital innovations that prioritize Indian ways of processing information.

Sahapedia’s key activities are centred around building inclusive and collaborative heritage documentation practices, educational and training curricula and awareness creation programmes. Through various initiatives centered around these ideas, Sahapedia has impacted the culture sector in India in the following ways: - Awarding fellowships to encourage new research ideas from young scholars through the annual Sahapedia–UNESCO Fellowship to support people in their work with communities and practices that often do not get the attention they deserve. In the past three years Sahapedia has granted fellowships to more than 260 scholars and researchers. A few examples of documenting lesser known traditions include - The Many Mahabharatas of Rajasthan, Non-proscenium theatre practices in Assam and Traditional Liquor-making Rituals of the Warlis etc. - Annual grant programme to support photographers in documenting communities, cultural spaces and practices across India and South Asia. In the past two years more than 50 photographers have been supported. A few examples of unique essays include Sozni and Kani work of Kashmir, Arghum Ceremony of the Gurungs, and Mahila Yakshagana in Karnataka. - Building an open interactive digital repository of intangible cultural heritage of India with a focus on the fast disappearing rich oral traditions of India. This resource is available across multiple Indian languages for wider community reach. More than 2,800 articles, videos, photo galleries have been published so far. - Building a collaborative practice that encourages engagement with communities for identifying and documenting local cultural resources through the Cultural Mapping Project. Other goals of the project include creating a mapping toolkit that can be used by other cultural organisations, designing a free user-friendly web resource that uses maps as storytelling tools and creating a directory/inventory of cultural assets that can be used for policy making in public and private sectors. Examples include Fort Kochi mapping that recorded 150 sites across 30 communities. Upcoming projects include mapping 1500 sites of interest in Pune (beta map - http://map.sahapedia.org/inpune/) and textile mapping across India. - Samvad (formerly Oral Histories) project that preserves the memories, lived experiences and opinions of people who are repositories of knowledge in the fields of arts and culture through critically informed interviews. So far more than 300 interviews have been recorded. Notable interviews among them are of Teejan Bai, exponent of Pandvani (musical narration of tales from the Mahabharata) and Master of Kathakali in the Kaplingadan style Madavoor Vasudevan Nair. - Sahapedia has also launched various initiatives to make intangible heritage part of the education curriculum. Example include: • Museums of India Project by Sahapedia (https://www.museumsofindia.org/) was included in a top graduate management school in India, i.e. MICA(https://www.mica.ac.in/), as part of their Cultural Analysis and Applications course. • Offering graduate students research grants to explore aspects of Indian culture under faculty mentorship. • Making available content created by the Bhakti/Sufi Project in the form of seminars for graduate students and workshops with middle-school students and schoolteachers based on narratives from different regions. - Sahapedia has played a role in building economic opportunities and awareness in tourism sector keeping heritage at core through initiatives like: • India Heritage Walks, a programme that curates heritage walks, talks, workshops and other events. Examples include workshops on the disappearing Kashmiri papier mache craft and Weaving with indigo. • Anubhuti, a programme that curates experiences with a special focus on persons with disabilities (PWD) and children from underprivileged backgrounds. • The Heritage Walk Training Programme initiated to train disadvantaged groups, like women from homeless shelters, to become heritage experience leaders/facilitators to provide an alternate means of livelihood generation and personal empowerment.

The charter of INTACH enjoins it to document, protect and preserve India’s unique cultural, architectural and natural heritage. The term ‘Heritage’ as used by INTACH covers not only man-made structures such as buildings and monuments, but also our craft and cultural heritage. One of the major concerns of INTACH has been the revival of crafts, traditional knowledge systems and preservation of craft skills to enhance the livelihood of craft communities in various parts of India. These cultural expressions in traditional skills have sustained Indian art for centuries. ‘INTACH directory of traditional building crafts of India’ is a first ever initiative to research, document, revive, and promote endangered Traditional Building Crafts of the country. India has a vast treasure of spectacular heritage building techniques. Unfortunately, many of these building skills are being lost with time. There is a strong need to document and conserve this repository of traditional and vernacular skills and knowledge available with craftsmen, masons, artisans, and other skilled workers. Traditional techniques were used to cool buildings, store and reuse water, provide structural strength guarding against earthquakes, and many more. The Division started documenting numerous building crafts in the year 2014 all over India. The traditional building crafts cover an enormous range of skills in woodwork, stonework, lime plaster, Araish, thatching, roof laying, and its various forms and techniques, tile laying both in flooring and roofing, decorative building crafts such as an inlay, shell windows, cast iron, wrought iron, and other metal work, glass castings and windows, surface decorations such as mirrorwork, painting and frescoes, the art of pillars, and brockets, to name a few. As a dedicated segment in the publication, the division also shares the list and contact details of artisans still engaged in each traditional building crafts. The directory not only documents the cultural significance and process involved but also enables the community to sustain their craft by continuing the practice. The division has covered a diverse range of regions and building crafts including Saurastra, Kasaragod, Chettinad, Punjab, Haryana, Spiti, etc. The intensive research of ‘Directory of traditional building crafts of Saurastra’ and ‘Building with bricks in the region of Punjab and Haryana’ has been published and the third in the series, ‘Rammed-earth traditions in Spiti and North-Gujarat’ to be released soon. The division also provides the artisans with technical training workshops, in order to enhance the sustainability of the craft practice and enable artisans to meet the market demand. Other than crafts research and documentation, the Division has played a pivotal role working with community based craft artisans and craft clusters across India and in reviving endangered craft traditions. Craft communities have been provided with skill enhancement and design development workshops to help develop new products that have market acceptability. The Division also assists craft artisans and communities with quality control and setting up direct market linkages. It curates Craft Utsavs (festivals) organized to provide craft artisans and communities with a platform to promote the sale of their craft works and link up with the market.

By this directory, an exhaustive list of artisans for a diverse range of traditional building crafts have been developed. The artisan directory enables the researchers and practitioners to employ these skilled artisans directly. Artisans have been able to get regular work due to the awareness among the professionals. Consistent demand also motivates the younger generation to learn their traditional building crafts and sustain their inherited values. The directory is a comprehensive research. It has been instrumental in bridging the gap between young designers and architects and traditional building crafts people, and to instill sustainability in the demand and supply system.

The need to establish a network focusing on the ‘revitalization of heritage urban areas to generate creative economy’ was expressed at the 5th Culture Minister’s Meeting of the Asia-Europe Meeting/ ASEM in September 2012 at Yogyakarta, Indonesia. This call was echoed at the Asia-Europe Foundation’s (ASEF) Experts’ Meeting and Public Forum on Investing in Heritage Cities: Stimulus for Sustainable Tourism and Livelihoods held on 24-25 June 2013 in Yangon, Myanmar. The idea of establishing the Asia-Europe Network of Urban Heritage for Sustainable Creative Economies was conceived at the Yangon meeting. In response to this call, The Asia-Europe Network of Urban Heritage for Sustainable Creative Economies was established in December 2013 with its Secretariat at the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH), New Delhi. The core idea of the experts’ meeting was that a heritage-led development of cities in Asia and Europe can ensure an attractive environment for people, tourists and business, if based on the specific needs and requirements of local communities. Vision – The Network seeks to create a whole new paradigm for urban regeneration and revitalization of heritage cities and towns by placing ‘creative economies’ at the core of this process. Mission – To design imaginative ways of integrating knowledge, culture, creativity and technology to offer solutions for local communities, thereby enhancing and sustaining heritage-linked local economies for a long-term future. Aims – Keeping this vision and mission in mind, the Network has identified its primary aims as follows: • To understand various aspects of the ‘people-place’ connection, • To identify the ways in which local economies depend on cultural assets, and • To develop approaches for revitalization of heritage cities based on creative economies approach. Key objectives – The main objectives of the project are: • To undertake documentation and knowledge sharing activities on some of the key aspects related to the urban revitalization of heritage cities linked to creative economies. • To develop a range of approaches/ solutions involving local communities. • To link creative economies with sustainable management of heritage cities. Unique quality – The Network employs an inter-disciplinary approach to addressing the issues of livelihood, cohesion, social welfare, local economy, sustainable management and traditional craft skills, and to design creative ways to generate economic opportunities linked to cultural assets in historic towns and areas. A long-term aim is to integrate culture and cultural diversity in sustainable development frameworks. Founding partners – The Network was founded by Europa Nostra (EN), International Institute for the Inclusive Museum (IIM), International National Trusts Organization (INTO), Yangon Heritage Trust (YHT) and Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH). The Network was initially supported by the Asia-Europe Foundation, Singapore.

Since 2007, the Aga Khan Trust for Culture has been implementing a major Urban Conservation effort in the heart of the national capital, Delhi. This is possible following a MoU with several government agencies, the Archaeological Survey of India, the Central Public Works Department and the South Delhi Municipal Corporation, amongst them. Titled, ‘Nizamuddin Urban Renewal Initiative’, this effort has aimed to couple heritage conservation with socio-economic development measures and environmental development to significantly improve the quality of life for the resident community living adjacent to the World Heritage Site of Humayun’s Tomb. The broad objective being to ensure Sustainable Development goals are met and the programmes continue as community led efforts in future years. The Nizamuddin area has an almost 99% Muslim community and besides being one of the densest ensemble of medieval monuments in Delhi, has significant intangible heritage associated with its built heritage including Quwwali music, cuisine and craft traditions. AKTC has established several local Self Help Groups (SHG’s) including groups of youth and women who have been trained to support their livelihoods through the cuisine, craft and culture of Nizamuddin. This works towards fulling SDG 8. Zaika-e-Nizamuddin (ZeN) is a group of 11 women who offer the cuisine of the 700 year old Nizamuddin Basti to their clients. The socio-economic programmes address SDGs 2,3,4,5 by working to improve the quality of health and education services provided by the government. These are done in partnership with the local government and have worked by assessing the gaps in the urban services provided by the government, filling the gaps either by improving the building, strengthening the services through the provision of equipment or human resources and most importantly building linkages between the community and government agencies. The open spaces that comprise parks and streets have also been improved significantly. Encroachment from parks have been removed and they have been landscaped and become space for community members to enjoy. Streets have been improved to facilitate walking and designed to match the heritage of Nizamuddin. Sanitation and waste management have received significant attention with pay and use services set up for waste collection at the household level and public toilets. These services still need a subsidy from the Aga Khan Trust for Culture. The Humayun’s Tomb - Nizamuddin Basti area also has 28 national protected monuments which have been conserved under the initiative.

Quels sont les résultats atteints jusqu’à présent grâce à la mise en œuvre de la mesure/initiative ?: 
The results achieved through the implementation of the project in the last four years are: • Selected artists were able to enhance their income after receiving adequate training by senior artists and participating in various stage performances. • The project has created improved cultural heritage consciousness among present generation through continuous culture awareness classes. • It has further enhanced leadership skills of ICH practitioners towards cultural heritage protection and sustainable development. • The project has also strengthened the status of women community and the marginalized sectors by providing them adequate opportunities to participate in the cultural life. Out of all the results mentioned above, working towards women empowerment has been the highlight of the project. Folk land is constantly working towards this goal with the help of several training programs. Trainings held for Shinkarimelam (traditional musical performance of Kerala) and mural painting under the first stage of the project have benefited hundreds of women who have started earning a livelihood through this. The women who received training in mural painting started incorporating their designs in fashion by painting on clothes. Their work is in demand on a regular basis and witnesses a special increase during wedding and festive seasons. This has also helped them in improving their self-esteem to a great extent. Mural painting training was given through 15 centres across Kasargod, Kannur, Kozhikode, Palakkad, Ernakulum and Idukki districts of Kerala. Women who received training in Shinkarimelam practice have started performing at stage shows in front of large audiences. Each woman artist earns up to Rs.1000 per performance. 17 centres were opened across Kerala to provide training to women and 1360 women have received Shinkarimelam training through this project so far.
Sur la base de l’analyse des réponses fournies via le formulaire des OSC, présentez jusqu’à 10 priorités des OSC dans la mise en œuvre de la Convention pour les 4 années à venir. : 
Based on the analysis of the responses received through CSO forms, following are the priorities highlighted by CSOs for an enhanced implementation of the Convention in the next four years: 1. Striving to eliminate gender and social inequalities in the field of culture The importance of equal participation and equal access to cultural life for all genders echoes among many of our CSOs. Thus, advocacy of gender equality in cultural life as well as promotion of those creative industries that support the weaker sections of the society is one of the key priorities for CSOs in India. 2. Capacity building and awareness among CSOs towards the implementation of the Convention It has been expressed that CSOs may be provided with adequate capacity building opportunities in specific domains related to the implementation of the Convention so that they are able to bring new ideas and approaches to the formulation of cultural policies, as well as to the development of innovative cultural processes, practices or programs that help achieve the objectives of the Convention. 3. Involvement of CSOs in governance for culture It has been suggested that CSOs need to engage pro-actively with State Governments and Local Urban Bodies to develop cultural profiles and policies that integrate with governance at all levels. This may also help in strategically planning the activities for CSOs that may help in directly contributing to the SDGs 2030 framework. 4. Public Private Partnerships Opportunities to promote creativity through public private partnerships are plenty, especially in India with a high percentage of Corporate Social Responsibility by law. Relevant capacity building for understanding cultural economics and strategic project development based on accountable benefit analysis are needed. Micro finance could play a significant role for empowering Small and Medium Enterprises for promoting creativity, especially Indigenous and Marginalized groups. 5. Patronage and dissemination of cultural expression of minority groups As the world gets more connected online, there is the risk of homogenized culture across countries and even worldwide. Therein lies the risk of diversity in cultural expression being lost either on account of lack of patronage or even imposition of majoritarian culture. Herein CSO’s need to emphasize on documentation, patronage and dissemination of cultural expressions of minority groups. 6. Cultural Tourism and SDGs In India, cultural tourism is the second largest employer after primary industries. Post pandemic, the challenge is to develop creativity, cultural tourism and SDGs in an integrated manner. Innovation and inspiration are critical. 7. Establishing collaborative mechanisms CSOs have expressed the need to establish facilitative bodies to provide a platform for patrons to collaborate, network, form alliances, pool resources and spearhead projects. Private patrons, corporate trusts and governments should be responsible for creating viable employment opportunities in order to make an impact on jobs in the arts and contribute to truly creating future leaders in the sector. All must work in tandem to develop the sector as a whole; which will in turn create better employment opportunities that provide better remuneration and economic rewards and incentives.

Décrivez les principaux défis rencontrés dans la mise en œuvre de la Convention et les principales solutions trouvées ou envisagées pour les surmonter: 
The demographic and geographical vastness of India poses challenges of direct accessibility of various strategies that promulgate the protection and promotion of the cultural diversity. Large-scale digitization of cultural resources is a step towards overcoming this challenge. Recognition and integration of culture as a strategic dimension for sustainable development, especially in the remote and rural parts of India, is also one of the major challenges with regards to the implementation of the Convention. Providing adequate resources and support for education for sustainable development is of paramount importance in order to ease this challenge. Empowerment of women and girls needs to be supported in order to ensure equal participation in the culture and creative sector. Stronger emphasis should be made on gender mainstreaming. Full potential of the culture and creative industries of India needs to be tapped for strengthening the implementation of the Convention. Research and advocacy on the role of culture and creative industries in sustainable development needs to be propagated as the first step towards overcoming this challenge.

Following are the priority areas and envisaged steps to further implement the Convention in the next four years: 1. Putting stronger emphasis on education for sustainable development is essential in the coming years for an enhanced implementation of the Convention. An understanding must be promoted among key decision makers of the potential of education to promote sustainability, reduce poverty, train people for sustainable livelihoods and catalyze necessary public support for sustainable development initiatives. 2. The empowerment of women and girls must be supported further by initiatives to improve their access to basic and higher education, training and capacity building. 3. Greater capacity must be built to integrate culture with science and technology. Improved collaborations between and among scientists, research institutions, private sector, NGOs and government needs to be encouraged. 4. Research and analysis designed to compliment the monitoring framework of the Convention needs to be undertaken to ensure that the implementation of the Convention is measured more accurately.
