The UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions seeks to ensure the rich diversity of culture and strengthen creation, production and access to cultural activities, goods and services worldwide.

UNESCO is the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation.

Australia has been a party to the convention since 2009. Under the convention, Australia reports every four years to the relevant UNESCO Intergovernmental Committee on what has been done to protect and promote the diversity of cultural expression in Australia and internationally.
