UN Conference on Least Developed Countries

01-04-2011

The Fourth UN Conference on LDCs takes place in Istanbul on 9-13 May 2011. A delegation from the EP's Development Committee is expected to participate as part of the EU delegation. The 48 Least Developed Countries (LDCs) remain stuck in poverty and have become increasingly marginalised, despite decades of special development actions. The conference will discuss calls for a shift in approach.
