UNIDO-Italy: A successful long-standing strategic partnership
UNIDO and the Government of Italy have been nurturing a long-standing strategic partnership, which has grown stronger over the years, evidenced by the large portfolio of technical cooperation projects that UNIDO implements with funding from Italy.
Italy is one of the largest governmental donors of UNIDO and is highly engaged in North and sub-Saharan Africa as well as in the Middle East. This partnership seeks to advance development objectives, including the economic empowerment of youth and women; mitigation of the root causes of migration, especially through job creation and private sector development; and the development and upgrading of industries in a socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable manner.
