UNIDO's Asia and Pacific programme
In a region as extensive and diverse as Asia and the Pacific, it makes good sense to work together with local or regional partners. The Asia and the Pacific Programme is responsible for developing regionally coherent programmatic approaches based on identified needs, priorities and demands of the countries of the Asia and the Pacific Region. The programme also serves as a focal point for coordinating UNIDO activities in the region in cooperation with UNIDO technical branches and the counterpart regional/sub-regional and country institutions in the Asia and Pacific countries. Furthermore, the Asia and the Pacific Programme is also responsible for providing policy guidance and supervision to its field network comprising Regional and Country Offices as well as UNIDO Desks and Focal Points within the region, comprising of sub-regions such as South Asia, Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia and the Pacific Island Countries.
