InfoPoint conference: Investing in value chains of culture and creativity

Job creation in the African fashion and arts landscape

Strengthening culture and creative sectors builds social capital and reinforces identities, but also generates trade and business opportunities. Indeed, the creative sector is one of the most powerful engines of development worldwide. It accounts for more than 48 million jobs globally –almost half of which are held by women – representing 6.2%of all existing employment and 3.1% of global GDP. It is also the sector that employs and provides opportunities for the largest number of young people under the age of 30. Investments in culture also contribute to building harmony between a better understanding of own and others’ identity, which is essential for nurturing cultural diversity and human and cultural rights.
