Regular exposure to smoke causes many people, usually #women tasked with #cooking, to develop a host of debilitating conditions. To fight this issue and at the same time boost the economy, #unido is implementing a programme which creates value chains of clean cooking fuels and #technologies in several countries; we are turning the lack of clean cooking fuels into an economic opportunity to incubate new #industries manufacturing bioethanol and stoves, and to create new jobs.
The adoption of these measures is expected to increase in demand to about 90 million litres of bioethanol a year, a turnover approaching US$88m.

Today is World Creativity & Innovation Day! “I think creativity is the most important human capital one must possess in order to proceed. Because #creativity creates #innovation, and that brings success”. What means creativity for you?
#unido initiated the project, “@creative_mediterranean“ funded by EU and @palazzo_chigi . It operates in seven countries in the Mediterranean: #algeria, #egypt, #jordan, #lebanon, #morocco, #palestine and #tunisia.
The project harnesses the creativity of artisans. By bringing them together to work in a cluster, the it helps the craftsmen modernize their processes and increase the quality of their products.
In far 1980, #unido brought a delegation of Chinese officials to the Shannon Free Zone on a three-week training course to share knowledge about the special economic zones (SEZs). According to @guardian, Shannon was the catalyst for China’s dramatic economic boom, subsequently contributing to the spread of SEZs across the world. Almost 40 years later, UNIDO DG Li, as part of his official visit to #ireland, will visit this “tiny Irish town” on 18 April 2019. Check an Impact Story on our website for more interesting details!
