The creative economy is a rapidly growing sector that has the potential to create jobs, income, and export revenues, foster innovation and entrepreneurship, and contribute to the overall well-being of society. UNCTAD’s short course provides a comprehensive overview of the creative economy. It explores its linkages to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and its role in the post-COVID-19 pandemic recovery. The course is designed to give delegates a thorough understanding of what constitutes the creative economy, its measurement, its contribution to sustainable development, and how policy and institutional frameworks can support its growth.

The course will cover UNCTAD’s mandate and work on the creative economy, trends in the trade of creative goods and services, and the challenges and opportunities facing the creative economy amid the increasing digitalization of the sector. By the end of the course, delegates will have gained a comprehensive understanding of the creative economy, including its potential to contribute to sustainable development and policies that promote its development.
