This year's conference also reflects the opportunities presented by the UNESCO World Conference on Culture Policies and Sustainable Development (MONDIACULT 2022) to support UNESCO's efforts towards fully recognizing culture as a global public good, particularly with the perspective of integrating culture as an independent goal into the post-2030 international development agenda.
