Event Details

The 32 landlocked developing countries with a population of over 530 million share some common problems due to their geographical location which affect their economic engagement with the rest of the world. The structural vulnerabilities and limited productive capacities of LLDCs expose them disproportionately to the severe negative impacts of climate change. The socioeconomic impact of COVID-19 has exacerbated the existing vulnerabilities of LLDCs to climate change, especially drought, desertification, land degradation and melting of glaciers and has highlighted the necessity to enhance their capacity to address climate change, energy and water-related challenges. It is important for LLDCs to invest in nature-based solutions and sustainable water conservation; in land restoration and in sustainable smart agriculture; in climate-resilient infrastructure; and sustainable energy solutions.
