On June 26, the UN Information Centre in Moscow, located on the Leontiefski lane, hosted a lecture for the MGIMO-University students about UNIDO projects implemented in Russia. UNIDO National expert of the UNIDO Centre in the Russian Federation Maxim Eliseev was invited as a lecturer.
He described main activities of UNIDO, its current projects and the experience achieved in the field of industrial development by now. Presentation showed a complexed structure of the United Nations with the existing subsidiary bodies, committees, funds and specialized agencies, among which UNIDO is positioned. During the conversation members of the audience asked various questions about the UNIDO activities — for example, about the possible existence of the preferred geographical areas of cooperation, about difficulties and challenges faced by UNIDO in the process of implementing certain projects and so on. Also students were highly interested in the extension of the UNIDO scope, in the arrangements for foreign student internships and future employment prospects.
We hope that students became even more enthusiastic about learning different activities of the organizations involved in the UN system, the concept of sustainable development and environmental management, and maybe in the future will fulfill themselves in this field.
