Abstract
Given the role of the UNFCCC process in providing special support to address vulnerability to climate change in LDCs, the UNFCCC secretariat took the lead in UN organizations pre-conference consultations on the theme on addressing vulnerability and protecting the environment in LDCs, as a contribution to the preparatory process for the Fourth United Nations Conference on LDCs. This publication is a result of the consultations, and provides information on support to LDCs in reducing their vulnerability to climate change, and in protecting the environment over the last decade 2001 – 2010. It further provides options for priorities on cooperation between development partners, UN agencies, multilateral development and financial institutions, and international organizations in coming up with specific proposals and deliverables in a renewed partnership for LDCs for the next decade.
