Istanbul Programme of Action for the LDCs (2011-2020): Monitoring Deliverables, Tracking Progress

 On Wednesday 15th October 2014, the  LDC IV Monitor's Report was launched in NY. The event was organized in association with Permanent Mission of Turkey to the United Nations and  Permanent Mission of Benin to the United Nations.

The Ferdi which is one of the eight members of LDC IV Monitor has actively contributed to the report with the writing of the chapters 3 and 8:

- "Assessing the prospects of accelerated graduation of the LDCs" by Alassane Drabo and Patrick Guillaumont, Ferdi

- "Facing climate change in the LDCs : how to fit the Istanbul Programme of Action"  by Patrick Guillaumont and Catherine Simonet, Ferdi

 The initiative 

Established in September 2011, LDC IV Monitor is an independent partnership of eight interested organisations that aims to add value to the official monitoring and review mechanism of the IPoA. These organisations have played active roles in generating policy recommendations towards a framework for a new international partnership in favour of the LDCs. LDC IV Monitor's report, which was produced outside of the official intergovernmental process, provides credible, evidence-based and policy-oriented assessments of delivery on the promises contained in the IPoA.

L'initiative LDC IV Monitor 

Etabli en septembre 2011, LDC IV Monitor est un partenariat indépendant de huit organisations dont le but est d'apporter une valeur ajoutée au mécanisme de suivi et de revue officiels du Programme d'action d'Istanbul (IPoA). Ces organisations ont joué un rôle actif en proposant des recommandations de politiques économiques dans le cadre d'un nouveau partenariat en faveur des PMA. Le rapport du LDC IV Monitor qui a été réalisé en dehors de tout processus officiel intergouvernemental  fournit  des recommandations de politiques économiques fondées sur l'évaluation objective des promesses contenues dans l'IPoA.
