UNESCO Conventions and Global Funds
Several global funds have been established under the UNESCO conventions in culture to facilitate the implementation of these legal instruments. The funds receive income and donations in accordance with the guidelines approved by the Conference of Parties of the relevant convention.
The resource of the fund generally consists of compulsory and voluntary contributions made by the State Parties as well as private donations. The use of the funds’ resources is decided by the Intergovernmental Committee of the convention concerned.
