Partnership Guide: UNIDO Business Partnerships for Industrial Development
A guide for the public and private sectors involved in United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) partnerships.
UNIDO’s mission is to promote sustainable industrial development in the developing countries and countries in transition. Stimulating development throughout an industrial value chain, with a long-term positive impact on the economy and society as a whole, is a complex issue. Partnerships can be an effective industrial development tool in that case, especially for small and medium-scale enterprise (SME) development.
The purpose of this guide is to serve as a guide for actors in the public and private sector who may become involved in a UNIDO business partnership for industrial development. Partnerships elements addressed include the different types of partner, their roles and expectations; partnership principles; the types of partnership; and stages in the partnership process.
