Chapter Summary

UNIDIR's mode of work - its flexibility in planning, fund-raising and cooperation with others - sets an example of how a UN institution with small resources at its disposal can, nevertheless, make a significant contribution towards meeting the needs of member states. The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) was formed in 1966 by changing the UN Centre for Industrial Development as part of the Secretariat of the United Nations into an autonomous organization of the United Nations by a resolution of the UN General Assembly. At that time the developing countries could not push through their demands for a parity of UNIDO with other UN specialized agencies. To the broader public UNIDO became known by its &t;Lima Declaration&t; of 1974, formulating the goal of raising the industrial production of developing countries to a quarter of the global level of production by the year 2000.
