Key Issues

The Least Developed Countries Report 2017 will discuss the role of access to modern energy (electricity and clean non-solid fuels) in structural transformation for sustainable development and poverty eradication in the LDCs, and how its effectiveness can be boosted.

The Report will analyse the current and prospective energy mix of LDCs, and its relationship with climate change mitigation, and discusses the related technology policies and technical assistance needs of LDCs.

It will also analyse the financing needs of these countries in view of the projected future energy requirements, and concludes with a discussion of policy alternatives.
