Relations with Intergovernmental Organizations (IGO) and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO)



Consultative status with UNIDO offers many advantages for NGOs and IGOs. It enables them to participate in UNIDO's policymaking sessions and engage in global debates, allowing them to advocate for industrial development priorities. Consultative status also grants access to valuable information, reports, and data on industrial development, empowering organizations to shape their strategies effectively. NGOs and IGOs with consultative status have enhanced opportunities for networking and establishing partnerships with other stakeholders committed to industrial development. Additionally, the recognition by UNIDO enhances their visibility, credibility, and reputation, attracting funding, support, and collaboration from various sources. Finally, consultative status enables NGOs and IGOs to align their efforts with UNIDO's sustainable development agenda and advocate for inclusive and sustainable industrial growth.
