Webinar: UNIDO´S. June 9th, 2022.

Dear colleagues,

You are cordially invited to our next webinar: UNIDO´S: Industrial Development Report 2022. The future of industrialization in a post-pandemic world.

The event will take place on Thursday, June 9th at 12:00-1:00 (ET).

Presenter: 

Fernando Santiago, Industrial Policy Officer at the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) 

Abstract:

The COVID-19 crisis has demonstrated that manufacturing remains the backbone of our economies. Yet, it also shows the vulnerability of our production systems to sudden shocks. For the recovery to take hold, it is critical to understand how the pandemic has affected the industrial sector—and the prospects for the future of industrialization as economies all over the world continue to rebound and recover. The Industrial Development Report 2022 contributes to this discussion by providing evidence at the country, industry and firm level that documents the impacts of the crisis, and by examining the drivers of resilience and vulnerability in those same contexts. Findings documented in the report strongly re-affirm the centrality of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 9—which is at the core of UNIDO’s mandate—to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
