A study of LDC capacity at the UNFCCC

The Least Developed Countries (LDCs) represent 48 of the 197
parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate
Change (UNFCCC). Not only are they the world’s poorest
economies, they are extremely vulnerable to the impacts of climate
change. Since 2001, they have acted together as the LDC Group in
UNFCCC negotiations. But as well as providing assistance, this has
aggregated individual country experiences, opinions and interests,
creating challenges, particularly when trying to remedy individual
countries’ struggles to participate, monitor and implement decisions back home. This paper aims to address this disconnect by analysing LDC feedback on how they prepare, analyse, report and disseminate information on the UNFCCC negotiations.
