The fourth ISID Forum aimed to address how UNIDO can contribute to advancing industry, infrastructure and innovation in the context of Sustainable Development Goal 9.
It highlighted the achievements of UNIDO’s new Programme for Country Partnership (PCP), which is being piloted in Ethiopia and Senegal, and is expected to be extended to a number of other countries in Asia and Latin America.
The first day of the high-level panel discussion focused on the potential of multi-stakeholder partnerships for creating linkages and synergies between infrastructure investment, industrial development and investment in innovation
The second day showcased the first concrete achievements made in the operationalization of the partnership approach in Ethiopia and Senegal. An introduction of PCP in Peru will follow.
The event was moderated by former CNN presenter Todd Benjamin.
