Industrial development, which is both sustainable and inclusive, will be crucial for achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) has said.
In September the international community agreed the agenda which is comprised of 17 new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Goal nine focuses on industrialization and fostering innovation.
Isabelle Dupuis has been speaking to UNIDO’s Managing Director Celestin Monga who is currently chairing the organization’s General Conference.
She asked him about the significance of this year’s fathering.
