The purpose of this document is to provide training guidelines for planning and managing industrial parks in developing countries. The guidelines prepared by UNIDO and Michigan State University, aim at helping promoters of industrial parks in developing countries capitalise on the experience and know-how that has been accumulated in developed countries.
In compiling the training guidelines, we have drawn upon first-hand knowledge of best practices developed in United States, who have one of the longest experiences in industrial parks. Over the past decades, UNIDO has contributed to the diffusion of industrial parks in developing countries and these perspectives have been taken into account in the guidelines, as they relate to adapting the concept to suit environments especially relevant to developing countries.
UNIDO has developed experience in assisting the establishment and management of industrial parks & related facilities in developing economies of Africa, Arab Region, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe and Latin America.
