The nineteenth session of the General Conference will be held from 29 November to 3 December 2021, in Vienna, Austria.

All relevant Conference documents, including a tentative schedule of the session, will be published on the UNIDO website.

The nineteenth session of the Conference offers an opportunity to Member States to discuss the role of inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID) in building back better in a post-pandemic context and within the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

To ensure that UNIDO’s Member States can benefit from their inherent development potential, UNIDO will use its convening role to bring together Member States’ representatives with leading thinkers and practitioners, to showcase cuttingedge developmental solutions and focus discussions on the contribution of UNIDO to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Participants will be able to take part in a forum on industrial development issues (item 9 of the provisional agenda, reference Industrial Development Board decision IDB.49/Dec.14), which will comprise the Inclusive and Sustainable Industrial Development (ISID) Forum, donors’ meeting and the launch of the Industrial Development Report 2022, as well as in a number of substantive side events throughout the Conference. The Conference will also mark the fifty-fifth anniversary of UNIDO. Further details on the schedule and the events will be provided in due course.
