CDP Theme: SDGs


Ahead of LDC 5, the LDC Future Forum brings together the academic community, policymakers and practitioners to gather new thinking on the challenges and possibilities for LDCs in the coming decade. 

CDP member Mariana Mazzucato gave the keynote address at the opening of the General Assembly’s Second Committee. The way we “do capitalism”, she said, has to be much more goal-oriented and the SDGs need to be put at the center of policy.

The general preliminary conclusion is that the impacts on development cooperation will be relatively small, as most development partners do not rely on whether or not a country is an LDC as a primary determinant of their assistance.

The CDP session on “Supporting sustainable graduation: making graduation irreversible and a steppingstone to achieve the SDGs” will take place on 31 August (11:15 - 13:15 Geneva time)
