Yearbook of the United Nations, 2002. Part 6, Intergovernmental organizations related to the United Nations. Chapter 16, United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)
The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) continued in 2002 to promote the sustainable industrial development of developing countries and economies in transition. As a global forum on industrialization, UNIDO facilitated the spread of industrial information, knowledge, technology and investment. The Industrial Development Board (IDB), at its twenty-fifth (Vienna, 15-16 May) and twenty-sixth (Vienna, 19-21 November) sessions, considered UNIDO's network of investment and technology promotion offices, UNIDO's involvement in major international conferences and implementation of the 2002-2005 medium-term programme framework. In November, IDB adopted the strategic guidelines “Towards improved UNIDO programme delivery”, an initiative designed to make UNIDO a more efficient and effective organization, particularly for the formulation and implementation of the 2002-2005 medium-term programme framework. The tenth session of UNIDO's General Conference was scheduled for December 2003. UNIDO implemented a new organizational structure by merging the Sectoral Support and Environmental Sustainability Division and the Investment Promotion and Institutional Capacity-building Division to form the Programme Development and Technical Cooperation Division. A Programme Coordination and Field Operations Division with responsibility for programming, funds mobilization, research and field offices was also formed. UNIDO membership remained at 169 in 2002.
