UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization)
Agenda Item 1: Preventing the ongoing problems caused by economic instability in developing countries
Agenda Item 2: Reducing rapid population growth in developing countries
The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) was established in 1966 to support the industrial development activities of developing countries. The organization became a specialized agency of the UN in 1986. The main purpose of the Organization is to contribute to the industrialization of developing countries and countries with economies in transition. In recent years, UNIDO has assumed an increasing role in global development, focusing on environmental sustainability, comprehensive globalization and poverty reduction. With the Lima Declaration adopted at the 15th General Conference held in Lima / Peru in 2013, it was decided that the main task of the Organization is to ensure "Inclusive and Sustainable Industrial Development" in UNIDO member countries. As of 2022, 170 countries are members of UNIDO. UNIDO provides technical assistance, policy advice, and capacity-building services to help countries build more sustainable and inclusive industrial ecosystems. While UNIDO does not specifically address the problems of economic instability and rapid population growth, it aims to promote sustainable development, which can help to address these and other related issues.
