In recent years, the multifarious possible connections between culture and development have become a hot issue in the global debate. One of the most important actors in this debate is the United Nations (UN) agency responsible for culture, i.e. the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The present paper focuses on the role that UNESCO plays, and might play, in understanding and strengthening the relationship between culture and development, especially by means of its Culture for Development Indicators (CDIS).
