A resource-efficient production is the building block for a circular economy. SwitchMed supports industries in the transition to a more resource-efficient and cleaner production. To achieve this, UNIDO qualifies local expertise, conducts industry demonstrations, and supports the development of policy framework that can improve the awareness and local conditions for a resource-efficient production in the region.


This online toolkit has been developed by the United Nations
Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) within the framework
of the SwitchMed Programme, an initiative funded by the European
Union. The target users of the toolkit are practitioners and service
providers working for the manufacturing industry interested in
learning an integrated methodology (TEST) and a set of tools to
help businesses improve their competitive advantage by adopting
resource efficiency strategies and solutions.
