Vision for UNIDO
According to Gerd Müller, UNIDO has a unique mandate: it is the only international organization to have industrial development and the pursuit of SDG 9 at its core. The Director General is passionate about promoting inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID), accelerating achievement of SDG 9, fostering interlinkages with other SDGs and the objectives of the Paris Agreement, and forging a new global alliance for inclusive and sustainable industrial development.
He is honoured to establish UNIDO as a leading UN agency in promoting a green transition and recovery and fostering resilient, inclusive and sustainable industrial development that ensures the survival of humankind and respects planetary boundaries. He also stands for a renewed partnership between developing countries, emerging economies and industrialized countries, especially through a stronger commitment by industrialized countries.
