    Join this informal talk to know more about some of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) activities related to sustainable urban development and the implementation of the New Urban Agenda.
    UNIDO promotes the mainstreaming of eco-industrial parks (EIP) in developing and emerging economies and is currently implementing a comprehensive programme of seven (7) EIP pilot projects. Such parks have significant potential as they foster economic and social growth whilst safeguarding the environment. Thus, eco-industrial development integrates business and environment to create economic opportunities and improved eco-systems as well as innovative avenues for business.
