The world’s Least Developed Countries are in a race against time to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. The remaining years need to usher in a new global partnership to ensure these 46 countries benefit from social, economic and environmental development.
The Fifth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries (LDC5) is a once-in-a-decade opportunity to accelerate sustainable development in the places where international assistance is needed the most – and to tap the full potential of the Least Developed Countries helping them make progress on the road to prosperity.
One (Rwanda) of the first four countries (others are Kenya, Tunisia and Iraq) in our pilot SDGs 1.4.2 & 5.a.1 data project is categorized as a Least Developed Country (LDC)
Four (DRC, Senegal, Uganda, and Zambia) of the five beneficiary countries in our ongoing UNDA 13th tranche SDG indicator 1.4.2 & 5.a.1 data project are categorized as LDCs.
This conference provides custodian agencies a platform to showcase progress in data generation in LDCs as well as mobilize political and financial support to upscale the data efforts, more so, in uptake of generated data to inform policies at national level.
