UN Industrial Development Organization
In recent years, UNIDO has assumed an enhanced role in the global development agenda by focusing its activities on poverty reduction, inclusive globalization and environmental sustainability. Its services are based on two core functions: as a global forum, it generates and disseminates industry-related knowledge; as a technical cooperation agency, it provides technical support and implements projects.
Today, the Organization is recognized as a highly relevant, specialized and efficient provider of key services in support of the interlinked challenges of reducing poverty through productive activities, promoting the integration of developing countries in global trade through trade capacity building, fostering environmental sustainability in industry, and improving access to energy.
UNIDO’s long-term vision is to aspire to a world of opportunity where progress is equitable, accessible and sustainable and where the alleviation of poverty is considered a common aim and global responsibility. UNIDO's role is that of an informed institution, in tuned with the goals of its partners and capable of making an effective contribution to industrial development and sustainable development.
