UN DESA partners on capacity development to support Member States in building integrated, evidence-based, inclusive and well-funded national strategies and plans to achieve sustainable development that ensure no one is left behind.
This map illustrates the geographical spread of UN DESA’s capacity development projects. As a global entity, UN DESA does not have country-based operations. Depending on the type of demand and the level of specificity of the request, UN DESA chooses the appropriate geographic level – global, regional, national or subnational – for its intervention. Sometimes, emerging best practices in capacity development for sustainable development are prototyped at the country-level and later scaled up and diffused throughout the international community.

Helping Government Officials in Least Developed Countries Understand what it Means to Leave the LDC Category
UN DESA developed the Gradjet tool to help government officials in least developed countries (LDCs) understand what it means to leave the LDC category and to plot a course for future action.
