UNCTAD’s Least Developed Countries Report provides a comprehensive and authoritative source of socio-economic analysis and data on the world's most impoverished countries.

The Report is intended for a broad readership of governments, policy makers, researchers and all those involved with LDCs’ development policies.

The Least Developed Countries Report 2021 bears the working subtitle, “LDCs in the post-COVID world: Learning from 50 years of experience”.
