Support Measures Portal for Least Developed Countries was developed by the CDP Secretariat of DPAD/DESA as part of a project to improve the capacity of LDCs to access and benefit from the international support measures adopted by the international development community. The portal gives users access to information about special international support measures (ISMs) adopted by the international development community for countries included in the LDC category. The Portal’s aim is to deliver a more effective development impact of international support provided to LDCs.
The Secretariat of the CDP services the Committee for Development Policy, a subsidiary body of ECOSOC. The Committee provides inputs and independent advice to ECOSOC on emerging cross-sectoral development issues and on international cooperation for development, focusing on medium- and long-term aspects. It is also responsible for reviewing the status of LDCs and for monitoring their progress after graduation from the category.
