Dr Gerd Müller

Director General, United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)

UNIDO is committed to supporting a green future for all. I call for concrete actions to drive a fair globalization, a new deal for LDCs in particular and those hit hardest by the multiple global crises. We need a just energy transition for industrial development in the Global South while creating decent jobs there.

Gerd Müller, Director General of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) as of 10 December 2021, has had various leadership positions from an early stage in his career. Following his tenure as a Member of the European Parliament, he was appointed Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection in 2005. In 2013, he was appointed Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development in the German Government. Gerd Müller has many years of experience in the fields of multilateral cooperation, sustainability, sustainable management and innovative agriculture. Implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement on climate action, the Convention on Biological Diversity, and the Beijing Declaration on Gender Equality are key focus areas of his work.
