17th Session of the General Conference
Now, more than ever, inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID) is central to global development and is playing an important role in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This is reflected most prominently in Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 9 on industry, innovation and infrastructure, but also in the targets underpinning the other 16 SDGs.
UNIDO recognizes that partnerships are essential for achieving ISID and meeting the ambitions of the 2030 Agenda. This is why the 17th Session of the General Conference, took place from 27 November to 1 December in Vienna, Austria, was themed “Partnering for impact — achieving the Sustainable Development Goals”.
