The Least Developed Countries (LDC) Group supports LDCs to negotiate as a bloc at the intergovernmental negotiations under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change sessions, to effectively represent their collective needs.
The LDC Group participates at UNFCCC sessions and issues key statements reflecting their collective position. The LDC Group will continue to offer leadership and cooperation to limit global temperature increases to 1.5°C, working with partners across the world.
The LDCs are 47 nations that are particularly vulnerable to climate change but have done the least to cause the problem. Through the coordination of the LDC Group, they play a leadership role in the collective global efforts to prevent dangerous climate change.
LDC Group Chairs convene the LDC Group to develop common positions, and common interests, on different negotiating issues. On behalf of the LDC Group, LDC Chairs are invited to speak at negotiation sessions and submit statements to the UNFCCC.
