By means of document 36 C/REP/24, the General Conference, was informed of the adoption of the amended Statutes. I. Activities 2. In accordance with Article 5 A.1 of the Statutes of the Fund, in June 2012, following consultations with the electoral groups and donor countries, the Director-General designated the following eight persons to sit, in a personal capacity, on the IFPC Administrative Council: Mr Silverse Lisamula Anami (Kenya), a renowned expert in choral music, and Chair of the Culture Technical Committee of the Kenya National Commission for UNESCO; Mr Roman Bĕlor (Czech Republic), Director of the Prague Spring Festival and Director of the Prague Symphony Orchestra; Mr Mohamed Chérif Khaznadar (France), winner of the UNESCO-Sharjah Prize for Arab Culture in 2010, great promoter of intercultural dialogue; Mr Nureldin Satti (Sudan), former staff member at the United Nations, and Chairperson of the Culture Commission at the 36th session of UNESCO s General Conference; Mr Ramezanali Vasheghani Farahani (Islamic Republic of Iran), artist and internationally renowned teacher of Iranian calligraphy; Ms María Elisa Velázquez Gutiérrez (Mexico), anthropologist and Mexican historian, Chairperson of the UNESCO International Scientific Committee for the Slave Route Project since 2011; Mr Saad A.

Ms Luisa Rebeca Sánchez Bello (Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela), Permanent Delegate of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to UNESCO, and head of several projects in the field of the promotion of culture (member representing the donor countries, not eligible to be President). 3. The first ordinary meeting of the Administrative Council of the IFPC took place on 9 July 2012 at UNESCO Headquarters, in the presence of its eight members. 4. On this occasion, the Administrative Council elected Mr Nureldin Satti (Sudan) as its Chairperson, and adopted its Rules of Procedure and the job description for the post of Executive Officer of the IFPC, whose recruitment was finalized in January 2013 following a competitive selection process (396 candidates applied). 5. The second meeting of the Fund s Administrative Council took place on 18 February 2013 at UNESCO Headquarters. The Fund s operational guidelines, form for requests for assistance, and revised financial regulations were approved at the meeting, while preliminary proposals regarding the implementation of a fundraising strategy were discussed to ensure that the Fund would continue to be provided for in the future. 6. The IFPC s operational guidelines, established in consultation with the managers of other funds set up by UNESCO s cultural conventions, provide that the IFPC is the only fund to which 37 C/REP/24 page 2 individuals, in particular artists and creators, may make financing requests with young people (18 to 30 years old) and people from developing countries taking priority. 7. Furthermore, in order to make the IFPC operational as soon as possible, the Administrative Council adopted a fast-track implementation cycle for 2013, which will last for seven months (from the publication of the call for projects and the approval of projects to be financed) instead of the 11 months of the normal cycle and will thus enable the immediate launch of approved projects on the ground, a list of which will be included in an addendum to this document. From 2014, the normal operational cycle as defined by the operational guidelines will be applied. 8. The first call for projects was launched on 1 March 2013 with the deadline of 2 May The call for projects was circulated to the National Commissions, permanent delegations, and NGOs accredited in the Culture Sector, and other cultural networks and associations. A total of 1,551 projects were received by the Secretariat, 1,479 of them before the deadline, from all the regions (Africa 34%, Latin America and the Caribbean 20%, Europe and North America 15%, Asia and the Pacific 7%, Arab States 6%). Of the projects submitted, 18% proposed interregional activities. 9. The third ordinary meeting of the IFPC Administrative Council has been convened for 25 October 2013 and will approve the list of projects to be financed, using existing funds, and will discuss the methods and options for a fundraising strategy for the IFPC.
