Promote ISID along Maritime and Continental Silk Road

United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)

The proposed project is an immediate follow-up to the Maritime Silk Road and Investment Cooperation Forum under the theme of “Maritime Silk Road-East meets West” on 8 September 2014 in Xiamen, China. UNIDO Director-General made a keynote speech at the Forum’s opening and received proactive feedback from some 200 Asian, African and Pacific Island delegates. The Chinese President Mr. Xi Jinping put forward the proposals of building Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road when he visited Central Asian and Southeast Asian countries in late 2013 and received positive responses from various State leaders. With the establishment of the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank and China’s US $40 billion Silk Road Fund, concerned countries are demanding joining efforts for a better future under the theme of Maritime and Continental Silk Road. UNIDO will take a leading role in promoting Inclusive and Sustainable Industrial Development (ISID) by enhancing trade and investment flows along Maritime and Continental Silk Road. This project is to be implemented in coordination with initiatives from UNDP, UNOSSC, UNESCO, UNWTO who will be working within the areas of their respective mandates and programmes in the concerned countries.

Enhancing UNIDO#s programmatic approaches in support of ISID

United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)

Achievements through the PCP pilot phase have demonstrated the impact potential of this new approach in further advancing ISID, IDDA III and SDG 9 in Member States. At the same time, several lessons emerged, including the need to further standardize internal processes, improve the overall reporting and monitoring of the PCP portfolio, and strengthen internal capacity, among others. This is particularly important in light of UNIDO’s growing PCP portfolio and the continuing demand for both PCPs and CPs from Member States. Following the promulgation of the PCP Policy and Guidelines, the Operations Integration Division (OID) of the Department of Programmes, Partnerships and Field Integration (PTC/PPF) initiated a range of initiatives and introduced several sets of mechanisms to contribute to improving the overall coordination and effectiveness of the PCP and CP portfolio. OID is also responsible for developing operational guidelines and manuals that help increase the scale, effectiveness, transparency and accountability of both the PCPs and CPs, among other functions. The proposed project is intended to support OID in further enhancing UNIDO’s programmatic approaches, in collaboration with relevant in-house entities. In addition, there is great potential for aligning UNIDO’s PCPs and CPs with the development projects of the SSCAF of China. Continuous and frequent communication between PTC/PPF and the Fund’s management body has forged a solid cooperation relationship on project development between SSCAF and UNIDO. A normative procedure is being formalized through joint efforts. In close cooperation with PTC/OMD and EPR/ETR/SRM, OID is striving to ensure the timely and quality preparation and submission of project proposals and final documents. Given the SSCAF’s particular requests for applications in the Chinese language, additional efforts are needed to ensure the accuracy and efficacy of submissions. OID will also facilitate face-to-face communication by the representatives of the SSCAF with UNIDO colleagues to increase mutual understanding, including through annual meetings, in order to sustain cooperation. Furthermore, the financial support from the SSCAF is also expected to leverage investments from various international financial institutions and multilateral environment funds, including the Asian Development Bank, the China EXIMBANK and the Global Environment Facility, among other partners with interest in collaborating through the PCPs/CPs. In view of this, the project is to enhance UNIDO’s programmatic approaches, namely the PCPs and CPs, to better support Member States in pursuing inclusive and sustainable industrial development.
