The UN calls for a special meeting regarding the course of action for the Least Developed Countries.
As the midpoint of the decade-long programme of action draws near, the UN General Assembly has decided to hold the comprehensive High-Level Midterm Review of the implementation of the Istanbul Programme of Action (IPoA) for Least Developed Countries from 27 to 29 May 2016 in Antalya, Turkey.
Participation will be at the highest possible political level and will bring together all stakeholders of the IPoA; representatives from governments, the private sector, multilateral organizations, civil society, academia. The High-level Midterm Review will result in an inter-governmentally negotiated and agreed outcome in the form of a political declaration.
The CFC will be represented at the conference by Mr. Parvindar Singh, Managing Director, and Mr. Andrey Kuleshov, Strategy and Development Advisor.
