The Unido Approach
Governance & CDA
Once a cluster has been selected for support, the UNIDO methodology foresees the appointment of a Cluster Development Agent (CDA) or cluster broker, who facilitates the process of cluster development in the different target clusters. The CDA is appointed at the beginning of the intervention to undertake a cluster diagnostic study. Based on the findings of this initial assessment s/he will work with the cluster for a specified period (over the duration of the project or even beyond) to enable the cluster stakeholders to work together to take the cluster from an underdeveloped one to a performing cluster, and to ultimately establish and operate a cluster governance structure.
