In 2018/2019, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization developed three new tools for the EQuIP toolkit on climate change, gender and industry 4.0.

The climate change EQuIP module proposes indicators and data sets to analyze the contribution of industry in total country emissions for the reconciliation of economic and environment protection goals. The tool also proposes basic analytical concepts for the understanding of the relation between industrialization and adaptation.

The gender module helps in the analysis of the relation between structural change and gender inequality. Whereas structural transformation towards industrialization brings economic growth and prosperity, this phenomenon is not always accompanied by higher wages and labour participation for woman.

The industry 4.0 module provides first mover and frontier indicators to start detecting the capacity of developing countries to import technologies and acquire new capabilities through trade relations.
