SDGs × UNIDO
◾️About the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere. The 17 Goals were adopted by all UN Member States in 2015, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which set out a 15-year plan to achieve the Goals.

◾️The SDGs and UNIDO
United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is fully committed to contributing to the achievement of the SDGs, while delivering on its mandate to support Member States in achieving inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID).
UNIDO’s contribution to the 2030 Agenda will be made most visibly on Goal 9. However, the multiplier effect of industrialization on all other areas of development will further reinforce UNIDO’s contribution to the achievement of the development goals in their entirety. Directly through its contribution to Goal 9, or indirectly through programmatic or thematic involvement in other SDGs, UNIDO supports the achievement of the agenda at large.
