Why UNIDO was established

• Many developing countries gained

independence, national authorities

regained legitimate control over domestic

resources, chartered a new course of

economic progress.

• Global political uncertainty - the world

divided by the Cold War.

• Growing reliance on local assets;

manufacturing seen as a key vehicle of

economic development.

• Transformation of minerals and

agricultural crops creates value, generates

employment, foreign exchange, supplies

local markets with consumer goods.

• A dedicated UN Agency – a neutral access

to industrial partnership, for access to

markets, technology and know-how.


UNIDO today:

Partner for Prosperity

UNIDO’s mission is to reduce poverty through

sustainable industrial development.

We want every country to have the opportunity to

grow a flourishing productive sector, to increase

their participation in international trade, and to

safeguard their environment.


Three thematic priorities

Poverty reduction through

productive activities

Trade capacity-building

Energy and Environment


Two core functions:

• Normative services: UNIDO generates and

disseminates knowledge related to industry and

provides a platform to enhance cooperation,

establish dialogue and develop partnerships

• Technical cooperation: UNIDO

designs/implements knowledge-based

programmes to support its clients. It also offers

tailor-made specialized programme development


(experience gained in the technical cooperation is shared with policy

makers; UNIDO's analytical work helps define priorities)
