Eco-Industrial Parks training

This seven-module online course provides an introduction to the concept of Eco-Industrial Parks and how they can deliver economic, environmental and social benefits to industrial parks, tenant companies, governments and local communities, thus making them more competitive, attractive for investment and resilient to risks.

This UNIDO Eco-Industrial Parks (EIP) training is designed to create a common understanding on eco-industrial parks, aligned with the International Framework for Eco-Industrial Parks developed by UNIDO, GIZ and the World Bank. In taking this course, participants will learn about key resources and tools available to support the identification, development, and implementation of EIP approaches in industrial parks in order to understand and learn about the opportunities, challenges and success factors for the mainstreaming of EIPs in their countries. 

The online course consists of seven modules with interactive exercises, access to further reading material and the EIP toolkit which is a set of customised and flexible tools that assist practitioners in the elaboration of EIP projects and initiatives.
