UNIDO’s mandate is to promote and accelerate sustainable industrial development by generating and disseminating industry related knowledge and providing technical support on poverty reduction, inclusive globalization, and environmental sustainability.

UNIDO in Yemen is following up the progress of the Montreal Protocol activities. While primarily concerned with the issue of eliminating ozone depleting substances (ODS), the activities carried out by UNIDO also enable the industries concerned to achieve increased productivity and improved economic performance in terms of lower operating costs, less maintenance, and higher product quality as well as reliability.

These activities also make a major contribution to generating employment, both by sustaining existing jobs, and by creating new ones.
