ESCAP: Special Body of LDCs, LLDCs and Pacific Island Developing States

Upcoming: 28 April 2021. In the context of UNESCAP’s 77th Commission Session, this meeting will “bring forth policy messages that are specific to LDCs, of which 5 are also small island developing States (SIDS) and 4 are landlocked developing countries (LLDCs). The Commission is invited to deliberate on the policy priorities highlighted in Document ESCAP/77/4, Summary of the Asia-Pacific Countries with Special Needs Development Report 2021: Strengthening the Resilience of LDCs in the Wake of the Coronavirus Pandemic, and provide further guidance to the secretariat as to which of these should be explored further, with a view to implementing them at the country-level. This would facilitate the secretariat in giving shape to its forthcoming analytical work, and more importantly, in planning and formulating technical assistance and capacity building projects for LDCs.” More information here.
