SIPP is a global knowledge platform that serves as a resource centre and reference point for industrial parks (special economic zones, eco-industrial parks, industrial districts, agroparks, corridors, technopark, etc.). It helps to consolidate best practices and knowledge produced as part of related UNIDO flagship programmes (e.g. GEIPP, IAIPs, etc.) and external sources.
Our mission is to promote partnerships and cooperation; to connect experts and facilitate matchmaking; to enhance sharing of data, analysis, tools and best practices; to accelerate dialogue among various actors; to provide capacity-building training, thereby spurring industrialization through sustainable industrial park development while addressing the challenges of knowledge gaps.
