Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

Transforming economies, tackling vulnerability and building resilience call for an integrated approach to industry, innovation and infrastructure.

Goal 9UNCTAD contributes to the sustained transformation of the economic structure in developing economies with a focus on regional and transborder infrastructure (Target 9.1), inclusive and sustainable industrialization (Target 9.2), integration into value chains and markets (Target 9.3) and adoption of clean technologies (Target 9.4).

UNCTAD technical cooperation with SIDS, LLDCs and LDCs focuses on upgrading technological capabilities of industrial sectors (Target 9.5), and mobilizing infrastructure investment through finance, technological and technical support (Target 9.a).
