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.
