Mission: inclusive and sustainable industrial development

UNIDO aspires to reduce poverty through inclusive and sustainable industrial development. All countries should have the opportunity to grow a flourishing productive sector, to increase their participation in international trade and to safeguard their environment.

Inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID) means that:

- Every country achieves a higher level of industrialization in their economies, and benefits from the globalization of markets for industrial goods and services.

- No one is left behind in benefiting from industrial growth, and prosperity is shared among women and men in all countries.

- Broader economic and social growth is supported within an environmentally sustainable framework.

- Unique knowledge and resources are combined of all relevant development actors to maximize the development impact of ISID.
