Responsible investment and sustainable technology contribute to economic transformation and lead to greater prosperity. Increased investment and technology flows create new jobs, generate income and help diversify the economy by expanding the production base while improving market access and infrastructure development. The rapidly-changing global investment landscape and revolutionary technical advancements bring many opportunities and, at the same time, present new challenges. UNIDO’s interventions in this area are based on monitoring (analysis and assessment of challenges and opportunities created by investment flows), learning (information sharing and knowledge dissemination for project identification, formulation and promotion) and networking (linkages to potential partners throughout the business partnership process).
