The objective of the least developed country expert group (LEG), established as part of the Marrakesh
Accords, is to provide advice to LDCs on the preparation and implementation of national adaptation programmes
of action. It is composed of 12 experts, including five from African LDC Parties, two from Asian LDC Parties,
two from small island LDC Parties, and three from Annex II Parties. In order to ensure linkages between the
LDC expert group and the CGE on adaptation issues, at least one member of the LDC expert group from an LDC
and one from an Annex II Party are also members of the CGE. The LDC expert group meets twice a year.
