Co – Organizer: UNIDO
The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is the specialized agency of the United Nations that promotes industrial development for poverty reduction, inclusive globalization and environmental sustainability. The mission of UNIDO, as described in the Lima Declaration adopted at the fifteenth session of the UNIDO General Conference in 2013, is to promote and accelerate inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID) in Member States. The relevance of ISID as an integrated approach to all three pillars of sustainable development is recognized by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). UNIDOâ€™s mandate is fully recognized in SDG-9, which calls to â€śBuild resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovationâ€ť. The relevance of ISID, however, applies to all SDGs.
