United Nations Industrial Development Organisations (UNIDO)
UNIDO is the specialized agency of the United Nations that promotes industrial development for poverty reduction, inclusive globalization and environmental sustainability.
UNIDO recognizes the MDGs as the overarching framework for collective action and believes that a competitive and environmentally sustainable industry plays a crucial role in accelerating economic growth, thereby reducing poverty and helping to achieve the MDGs. UNIDO supports developing countries in reducing poverty through productive activities, improving their capacity to trade and gain access to international markets, and through energy access for the poor as well as promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy to fight climate change. And, while all eight MDGs are critically important, UNIDO especially focuses on four MDGs (MDG1, MDG3, MDG7 and MDG8)
