2021 CDP Plenary – Briefing to Delegates on LDC issues
The Committee for Development Policy (CDP) held its 23rd Plenary Session from 22 to 26 February 2021. During the meeting the CDP conducted the triennial review on the LDC category, recommending Bangladesh, Lao People's Democratic Republic and Nepal for graduation from the list of LDCs. The next steps on this recommendation are for ECOSOC to endorse it and for the General Assembly to take note. The CDP also discussed, among other topics, the impact of Covid-19 on LDCs and its input into the preparatory process of the 5th UN Conference on LDCs (LDC5).
A briefing to Member States on LDC-related issues addressed during the meeting was held after the conclusion of the Plenary. The presentation is available here. The recording of the briefing is available here.
The results of the meeting will be communicated formally to the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and will be made available on the 2021 CDP Plenary page.
