November 10, 2014
Start date: 4 November 2014
End date: 5 November 2014
Organizer: United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)
Location: Vienna International Centre
In light of UNIDO’s new mandate to promote inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID), which was adopted in December 2013 in Lima, UNIDO is organizing two ISID Forums in 2014. The first one, held in June, engaged Member States in a dialogue to formulate strategies and policies that promote inclusive and sustainable industrial development. The key outcomes of the first Forum serve as the foundation for the second Forum, which will extend the impact and outreach of ISID goals by strengthening the partnership dialogue between UNIDO, recipient Governments, development finance institutions, development agencies, the private sector and donors in order to scale up investment for inclusive and sustainable industrial development in developing countries.
Gain momentum and a better understanding of UNIDO’s partnership-based approach in order to define concrete working models of cooperation between Governments, stakeholders and UNIDO that will promote investment in ISID in line with the post-2015 sustainable development goals.
Showcase UNIDO’s ISID Programme for Country Partnerships through two pilot countries to private and public stakeholders and initiate a partnership dialogue in selected beneficiary countries.
Define modalities of collaboration for partnership in order to scale up investment in ISID and increase the impact of ISID in assisted member countries.
Agree on the way forward for the sustainable development of UNIDO partnerships for investment in ISID in 2015 and beyond.
