Obowiązki Consultant for feasibility study on creative economy PrizeOverview of the functions of the postUNESCO Prizes contribute to the achievement of the Organisation’s strategic objectives and programme priorities and give recognition to individuals and institutions for outstanding achievement in a particular area within UNESCO’s mandate. They correspond to at least one strategic objective of the Organisation’s Medium-Term Strategy (C/4) and/or to one or several programme priorities of major programmes as contained in its Programme and Budget (C/5). Each UNESCO Prize carries a high moral and symbolic value, associated with a respectable monetary award.In order to enhance the management and programmatic coherence of UNESCO Prizes, a revised Overall Strategy for UNESCO Prizes and its Constituent Criteria was adopted in 2013 by the 191th session of the Executive Board and revised in 2015. This revised Overall Strategy provides, inter alia, guidelines for the creation of new Prizes.In conformity with this strategy, when a Member State proposes to create a new Prize, a feasibility study assessing the Prize’s potential performance and effects must be undertaken by an external expert to ensure impartiality, objectivity and transparency. The feasibility study must follow the assessment criteria and sub-criteria defined in the revised Overall Strategy to ensure a uniform quality assurance process.
