Since its founding in 1966, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Government of Japan have been enjoying a close and growing relationship. Based on its experience, Japan is a valuable partner of UNIDO as it supports the Organization’s mandate of inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID). Moreover, Japan is consistently one of the largest contributors to UNIDO – both through its assessed contributions and through regular voluntary contributions to technical cooperation programmes and projects.

The current cooperation between the Government of Japan and UNIDO focuses on activities in the following priority areas of Japan. 1) Empowering all people and leaving no one behind. 2) Creating growth markets, promoting technological innovation, quality infrastructure, and investments. 3) Conserving the environment, promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy, and sustainable resource use as well as mitigating climate change.

This brochure explains, in terms of UNIDO-Japan Cooperation, the priority domains of Japanese policies, the history of the Third Industrial Development Decade for Africa (IDDA III), and also the projects TICAD7 focused on as main topics held in August 2019.
