In the aftermath of the prolonged global economic recession, new policies to foster sustainable industrialization have been called for. In turn, the demand for statistical indicators and policy advisory services to accelerate industrial development and competitiveness while simultaneously promoting social prosperity and safeguarding the environment has increased.

These objectives are among the key mandates of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). Its Statistics Unit works to develop statistical indicators to monitor the global progress made in inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID), a strategy adopted by UNIDO in 2013 at the 15th session of its General Conference.

UNIDO endeavors not only to increase the coverage of countries but also to take account of the recent major changes in the world economy and the structural changes it is yet to see. Diminishing natural resources and the new emphasis on the sustainability of industrial production in view of environmental issues require a new approach. These factors have led to dialogue with other UN agencies and international organizations about the definition of new statistical indicators.

To this end, and in dedication to the 20th edition of the International Yearbook for Industrial Statistics, UNIDO organized a seminar in Vienna, on 11-12 June 2014, of statistical experts from national statistical bodies and international organizations to discuss current practices and developments in survey methods and measurement issues as well as the role of industrial statistics in policy making, in coping with environmental challenges and the potential advantages of technical co-operation between UNIDO and national statistical offices (NSO).

The proceedings present the organizational matters surrounding the Seminar and summarize the presentations and papers presented during its course.
