LDC News Service has been created to provide a reference point on the Internet for all media coverage on Least Developed Countries, which the UN has designated as the 48 poorest, most vulnerable countries in the world. Here you will find all the latest information from the media, particularly in LDCs about the most important issues for LDCs.
It is designed to improve the level of knowledge about LDCs, and also to contribute to raising the profile of LDC civil society.
LDC News Service consists of a web-portal that brings together opinions, news and information about LDCs and from LDC journalists and produces twice-yearly newsletters on relevant topics to LDCs written exclusively by LDC journalists.
Established after the Fourth United Nations Conference on Least Developed Countries (UNLDC-IV) in May 2011, LDC News Service has close links to LDC Watch, the network of NGOs working to improve the situation of LDCs.
It is currently based in London, UK and its Editor is Daphne Davies, who was involved in setting up LDC Watch.
Bhagirath Yogi, who has worked with the BBC World Service for more than two decades, and writes on development and environmental issues, is the Joint Managing Editor.
