UN ECA: Review of Progress of African LDCs

The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) has released its 2020 Review of progress made on the Programme of Action for the LDCs for the Decade 2011-2020.  The document is available here.

The report concludes that “the progress being made against the Programme of Action is not entirely positive, although there are definitely noteworthy achievements being made. Without further commitments from both the LDCs themselves and the support of their development partners, progress comparable to that made over the period to date (2011–2019) will not enable the graduation of significant numbers of African LDCs over the coming years.”
