Inclusive and Sustainable Industrial Development
The concept of inclusive and sustainable industrial development was endorsed through the Lima Declaration by the UNIDO Member States during the 15th session of the UNIDO General Conference held in Lima, Peru, in December 2013. The concept aims to harness the full potential of the contribution of industry to the achievement of sustainable development, and lasting prosperity for all.
“Inclusive and Sustainable Industrial Development means that:
● Every country achieves a higher level of industrialization in their economies, and benefits from the globalization of markets for industrial goods and services.
● No one is left behind in benefiting from industrial growth, and prosperity is shared among women and men in all countries.
● Broader economic and social growth is supported within an environmentally sustainable framework.
● Unique knowledge and resources are combined from all relevant development actors to maximize the development impact of ISID.”
