3rd UN Conference on landlocked Developing Countries (LLDCs)

Breaking Barriers, Driving Progress
Third UN Conference on the Landlocked Developing Countries Kigali, Rwanda

Landlocked Developing Countries (LLDCs) are locked out: with no direct territorial access to the sea, they struggle with international trade, connectivity, and economic development.

Without direct access to the global marketplace or adequate transport and logistics infrastructure, landlocked developing countries facing unique and significant challenges in achieving the sustainable development goals.

Without direct access to coastal ports, landlocked developing countries must rely on transit countries to connect them with international markets. This can lead to increased transportation trade costs, delays in the movement of goods, and susceptibility to political and economic instability in transit countries. These challenges often result in reduced foreign direct investment, limited export opportunities, and slower economic growth.

Despite these challenges, landlocked developing countries are home to diverse and vibrant communities with untapped potential.

The Third UN Conference on Landlocked Developing Countries opens an opportunity to explore innovative solutions and build meaningful partnerships to unlock the potential of landlocked developing countries.

Innovative solutions, strategic partnerships, and increased investment can help to address these challenges and unlock the full potential of these nations. By supporting these countries, we can help to build a more equitable and prosperous future for all.
