Here’s Why Doha’s LDC5 Conference Is Such A Big Deal


The Fifth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries (LDC5), which is being held in the Qatari capital from March 5th to 9th, is drawing world leaders, policymakers, and prominent figures to Doha.

The UN conference is only held once a decade

Previous countries that hosted the conference are Turkey, Belgium and France.

The LDC5 will gather 4,000 to 5,000 people at the Qatar National Convention Centre to debate the most important issues impacting the least developed nations.

The conference, whose theme is “From Potential to Prosperity,” will elect Qatar’s Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani as its president.

The activity comes after the UN General Assembly last year adopted the Doha Programme of Action for Least Developed Countries for the Decade 2022-2031 (DPoA).

Being a significant UN partner, Qatar supports the organization’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and offers assistance to countries who are experiencing crises.

Qatar has given the least developed nations more than $363 million since 2020.
