United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is the
specialized agency of the United Nations that promotes industrial
development for poverty reduction, inclusive globalization and
environmental sustainability. The mission of UNIDO, as described in the
Lima Declaration adopted at the fifteenth session of the UNIDO General
Conference in 2013 as well as the Abu Dhabi Declaration adopted at the
eighteenth session of UNIDO General Conference in 2019, is to promote
and accelerate inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID)
in Member States. The relevance of ISID as an integrated approach to all
three pillars of sustainable development is recognized by the 2030
Agenda for Sustainable Development and the related Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs), which will frame United Nations and country
efforts towards sustainable development. UNIDO’s mandate is fully
recognized in SDG-9, which calls to “Build resilient infrastructure,
promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster
innovation”. The relevance of ISID, however, applies in greater or
lesser extent to all SDGs. Accordingly, the Organization’s programmatic
focus is structured in four strategic priorities: Creating shared
prosperity; Advancing economic competitiveness; Safeguarding the
environment; and Strengthening knowledge and institutions.

of these programmatic fields of activity contains a number of individual
programmes, which are implemented in a holistic manner to achieve
effective outcomes and impacts through UNIDO’s four enabling functions:
(i) technical cooperation; (ii) analytical and research functions and
policy advisory services; (iii) normative functions and standards and
quality-related activities; and (iv) convening and partnerships for
knowledge transfer, networking and industrial cooperation. Such core
functions are carried out in Departments/Offices in its Headquarters,
Regional Offices and Hubs and Country Offices.

The Directorate
of Digitalization, Technology and Agri-Business (DTA), headed by a
Managing Director, coordinates and mainstreams the Fourth Industrial
Revolution (4IR) in its technical cooperation, strategic, normative
activities aiming at fostering the inclusive and sustainable development
in the era of 4IR. The Directorate creates new and innovative technical
cooperation deliverables in the areas of trade, investment, technology
innovation and agro-industry and agri-business. The Directorate
comprises the Department of Digitalization, Technology and Innovation
(DTI) and the Department of Agri-Business (AGR).

Responding to
the growing demand for supporting inclusive and sustainable industrial
development (ISID) in the era of the new industrial revolution, the
Department of Digitalization, Technology and Innovation (DTA/DTI) leads
the way in addressing opportunities, challenges and risks stemming from
the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) and its contribution to
sustainable socio-economic progress. The Department is responsible for
the strategic coordination of 4IR-related matters with designated focal
points in other technical Departments and organizational entities of
UNIDO, as appropriate. In consultation with public and private partners,
DTI designs and implements holistic interventions that are tailored to
specific country needs. The Department’s interventions actively identify
and combine complementary services from across three Divisions, namely:
Innovation and Digitalization Division (DTA/DTI/IDD)
Investment and Technology Promotion Division (DTA/DTI/ITP)
Quality Infrastructure and Smart Production Division (DTA/DTI/QIS)

position is located under the Innovation and Digitalization Division
(DTA/DTI/IDD), which promotes digital transformation and innovation
ecosystems building, to advance the economic competitiveness of
developing countries by helping them to benefit from the rapid progress
of digital and convergent technologies associated to the Fourth
Industrial Revolution (4IR) and ensuring a smooth transition towards
cyber-physical industrial systems and a smart society.

response efforts of the international community, including the United
Nations system and counterpart governments across the world, to address
this crisis. UNIDO has been implementing a range of measures responding
to the emergency to mitigate the strain on the livelihood of the

will provide not only short-term assistance for the people, hospitals,
and medical institutions, who are currently in need of improved access
to PPE, disinfectants, and hand hygiene supplies, but its successful
implementation will also contribute to medium- and long-term
humanitarian development of the country and region by anchoring stable
public health and bringing stability to both economic activities and the
livelihood of the people, while sustaining employment and sources of
the livelihood of the people by underpinning the domestic production
