State of the LDCs: Productive Capacity in the LDCs and the Post 2015 Development Agenda (2013)

When United Nations Member States gathered in Istanbul in 2011 at the Fourth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries (LDCs), it was with the view to express global solidarity and renew commitments to support strong and sustainable growth and development in this poorest and most vulnerable group of nations. The Istanbul Declaration and Istanbul Programme of Action for the Least Developed Countries for the Decade 2011-2020 encapsulate such solidarity and commitments.
