Map of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs)

The Least Developed Countries (LDCs) are 48 nations especially vulnerable to climate change.  They have suffered hundreds of thousands of deaths from climate related disasters in the past few 5 years alone, yet have contributed less than 1 per cent to historic greenhouse gas emissions.  At the intergovernmental negotiations under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) they work together as a negotiating bloc to achieve equitable climate outcomes for the most vulnerable countries.
