UNIDO

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations. Its mandate is to promote and accelerate sustainable industrial development in developing countries and economies in transition, and work towards improving living conditions in the world's poorest countries by drawing on its combined global resources and expertise.

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. Our services are based on two core functions: as a global forum, we generate and disseminate industry-related knowledge; as a technical cooperation agency, we provide technical support and implement 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.

Our 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.

We focus on three main thematic areas, in which we seek to achieve long-term impact:

  • Poverty reduction through productive activities
  • Trade capacity-building
  • Energy and Environment
