It is with great pleasure that I provide this introduction to the work of the Least Developed Countries (LDC) Group.
As the poorest countries in the world, the 48 LDCs are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. The LDC Group represents these nations at the UN climate change negotiations, where we work to secure fair and ambitious action to tackle the global challenge of climate change.
With the entry into force of the Paris Agreement last year, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change process has renewed momentum. Yet while the Paris Agreement is an important milestone, we cannot lose sight of the major actions required to put the global community on a path towards a safer and more prosperous future for all.
The LDC Group will continue to offer leadership and cooperation to limit global temperature increases to 1.5°C and is committed to working with our partners across the world to implement concrete actions that will be felt back home in our communities.
As Chair of the LDC Group I look forward to working with all concerned in our common efforts to tackle climate change. We hope you find the information contained on this website useful, and look forward to continued dialogue and support.
With best regards,
Gebru Jember Endalew
