United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) continued its activities to promote global prosperity for the sustainable industrial development of developing countries and countries with economies in transition. In 1998, UNIDO’s organizational and functional transformation, mandated by the Business Plan for the Future Role and Functions of UNIDO, grouped UNIDO’s activities into two main areas: strengthening of industrial capacities and cleaner and sustainable industrial development. Efforts would focus on the least developed countries, especially those in Africa, agro-based industries and cooperation with the private sector, particularly small and medium-scale enterprises (SMEs).
