UNIDO, PTB, and Mesopartner are collaborating to develop an integrated global index for measuring the state of quality infrastructure (QI) and its contribution to sustainable development. The new index will combine the strengths of UNIDO's QI4SD Index and Mesopartner's Global Quality Infrastructure Index (GQII), providing a consistent and unified assessment of QI worldwide. The initiative aims to support developing economies in shaping their QI systems to best support their development endeavours and track progress towards the SDGs.
