Abstract or Description

The examples set out in this paper highlight some of the practical ways in which culture and development are being linked in practice. They have been drawn from submissions made by civil society organisations to the Commonwealth Group on Culture and Development1 and offer practical examples to support the Group’s Commonwealth Statement on Culture and Development. They aim to shed light on the Group’s recommendations and show potential ways in which they can be taken forward in practice. The four examples illustrate how culture-based methods and resources can support social transformation, realise economic benefits
and foster community cohesion.
