Transforming global development: An LDC perspective on the post-2015 agenda
Issue paper, 20 pages
Least Developed Countries (LDCs) have much to contribute to forging a new global agreement on development to replace the Millennium
Development Goals after 2015. But there is a significant risk that LDC positions and perspectives will get insufficient attention as the post-2015 negotiations move forward. Individual LDC negotiating power is weak, but as a group they can be powerful. This paper, prepared by an independent group of experienced development
practitioners from LDCs, explores global development issues of most relevance to LDCs and offers suggestions on common positions that
would help LDCs assure that their development objectives are effectively incorporated into the post-2015 framework and goals.
