Overview:

The Joint Programme (JP) focused on promoting Creative Industries (CI) in areas of high concentration of rural people afflicted by economic and social exclusion, but with the potential to meet market demands, increase inclusion and reduce poverty through rural community tourism, handicrafts, organic farming and food production.

The JP’s focus was three fold, it sought to provide a favorable institutional environment for the development of inclusive creative industries. For this purpose it prepared various studies, supported regional governments’and municipal bylaws and training of civil servants and other relevant actors from academia, private sector and civil society on issues related to inclusive businesses. This included the creation of a graduate programme on Creative Inclusive Industries in a private university in one of regions of intervention.

It also sought to increase market access for micro and small producers involved in Creative Industries. For this purpose it financed 58 entrepreneurships, supported 45 market initiatives and created 39 revolving funds. It also supported capacity building and access to certification such as: 93 professionals certified as Trainers for Management of Creative Industries and Inclusive Development; 160 artisans and entrepreneurs certified in TICS; 400 smallholder sectors of intervention of the JP have been trained with the Program Management Training and Development Inclusive creative industries, 60 professionals completed the Diploma on Creative Industries and Inclusive Business developed; 49 regional cooks received Certification in Occupational Skills.

Under outcome 3 the JP sought to ensure that strategic partners have products, tools, methodologies and other validated instruments for the promotion of ICIs, in this manner ensuring sustainability and replicability of the JP. One of its main achievements was the programe’s ability to leverage funds by linking the programme to existing Government programs such PROFONAMPE, AGRORURAL, TELEFOOD and PROCOMPITE, in addition, the Regional Government of Cusco and Puno contributed funds for the formulation of project proposals for public investment in Creative Industries, and the regional government of Puno has agreed to include funds for ICI’s in the 2014 budget.

  • Partnerships established with private sector and universities.
  • Enhanced coordination among UN agencies (complementary activities and budgets more harmonized at national and local level).
  • Strong focus on capacity building and knowledge sharing with key counterparts to ensure JP sustainability.
  • Improvement plan revised.
  • Synergies with Children and food security JP in the country (proposal designed for a complementary pilot intervention in Ayacucho).

 

Lessons Learned:

  • Constant advocacy is crucial in a changing political context and with regular staff turnover.
  • Integration of bottom-up initiatives led by local and provincial governments is a crucial factor for sustainability of results.
  • Effective M&E mechanism and high level of coordination within UN agencies and with local counterparts is essential for a smooth implementation of the JP.
  • The existence of a lead agency and lead partner, allows consistency between the agencies and the UN system vis-a-vis the Peruvian State.
  • A joint UN program overall budget strengthens multi-agency programming and clear definition of objectives and common goals among UN agencies in the country.
  • Joint programming allows each agency to contribute a technical level in accordance with their mandates and expertise. For the ILO, the UN system agencies could have better leverage the tripartite structure of the organization (government, workers 'and employers' organizations) to have political impact on private sector development.
