UNIDO’s investment promotion interventions aim to facilitate the process of identifying, mobilizing capital, knowledge and technological resources for a more targeted investment development impact
With its global reach and vast network of partners, UNIDO has a unique role in helping entrepreneurs, businesses, investment institutions and countries to mobilize investment at all steps in the process.
UNIDO works with investment promotion agencies to attract investment, and helps countries and industries to create online investment promotion platforms. This makes it easier for potential investors to search and select investment opportunities – and gives companies a much broader global investment pool.
UNIDO also organizes investment and technology forums, investment advisory services, technology exhibitions and investment promotion events.
UNIDO's Investment and Technology Promotion Offices (ITPOs) link international investors to local value chains and SMEs to attract foreign direct investment.
Together with the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP), UNIDO runs the Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN), a global network of climate and clean energy financing experts, which offers free business coaching and investment facilitation to entrepreneurs developing climate and clean energy projects in emerging markets.
