UNCTAD's work on Landlocked Developing Countries

Current work of UNCTAD on landlocked developing countries (LLDCs) includes:

  • Identifying growth opportunities and supporting measures to help LLDCs to harness the potential of their natural resources for economic diversification, including by facilitating their participation in regional and global commodity value chains.

  • Identifying indictors to measure and benchmark productive capacities in LLDCs to help them to formulate policies that place productive capacities at the center.

  • Undertaking policy-focused studies at the request of LLDCs to seek alternative approaches to trade and development.

  • Providing advisory services on policies and strategies aimed at fostering productive capacities and structural economic transformation.

UNCTAD also assisted several countries in export diversification with a focus on horticulture, mining and fisheries.
