Second Inclusive and Sustainable Industrial Development (ISID) Forum – “Partnerships to scale up investment for ISID”

4-5 November 2014 | Vienna, Austria

Convened under the theme ‘Partnerships to scale up investment for inclusive and sustainable industrial development,’ the meeting was the second in a series of two global forums on inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID) organized by the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). The second ISID Forum (ISID Forum 2) took place from 4-5 November 2014 in Vienna, Austria. Gathering around 450 participants, the Forum provided a platform to promote ISID. Based on the outcomes of the first ISID Forum (ISID Forum 1), ISID Forum 2 extended the impact and outreach of ISID goals by strengthening the partnership dialogue between UNIDO, recipient governments, development finance institutions, development agencies, the private sector and donors in order to scale up investment for ISID in developing countries.

The Forum sought to: showcase UNIDO’s ISID Programme for Country Partnerships (PCP) through two pilot countries – Ethiopia and Senegal – to private and public stakeholders, and initiate a partnership dialogue in selected beneficiary countries; define modalities of collaboration for partnership in order to scale up investment in ISID and increase the impact of ISID in assisted member countries; and agree on the way forward for the sustainable development of UNIDO partnerships for investment in ISID in 2015 and beyond.
