Industry is key to climate change fight, says UN industrial development chief

27 September 2019

The UN Industrial Development Organization, UNIDO, works towards poverty reduction, inclusive globalization and environmental sustainability, and that mandate is crucial to the battle against global warming.

That’s the view of Director General Li Yong, who spoke to UN News’s Maoqi Li, to discuss a range of issues from tackling climate change, managing the private sector’s contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and UNIDO’s efforts to foster “digital infrastructure” across Africa.

He began by explaining the significance of Monday’s Climate Action Summit here at UN Headquarters.
