The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) response to covid-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is confronting each of us with unprecedented challenges. Every country is feeling its impact on health care systems, the economy and society as a whole. In the global fight to overcome this virus together, UNIDO is working with our Member States to address this crisis.

As we respond to the emergency and start to recover from the socio-economic shock, we must work together to ensure that the recovery will focus on building inclusive and sustainable economies that are more resilient in facing pandemics, climate change and many other global challenges. Here, UNIDO has much to offer in terms of rebuilding supply chains, creating decent jobs for women and youth, transferring technology, including advanced digital production technology, industrial upgrading, resource efficiency and cleaner production, to name but a few.

We are going to share with you our stories about how we adapt to the new situation and contribute to the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check back regularly to stay informed!
