This section lists a number of UNIDO publications of relevance to cluster and network development and provides the links to key academic references in this field. Some of these publications have served as a basis for the development of UNIDO's methodological approach presented.
This section is thus structured into two parts:
The UNIDO publications are further divided into general and thematic publications. General UNIDO publications are related to the wider cluster and network development approach. The thematic publications focus on specific themes that UNIDO has sought to combine with the cluster development approach, both in theory and practice, such as gender, CSR, exports, and poverty alleviation. All publications can be downloaded free of charge and are mostly available in English, but also French and/or Spanish.
