Abstract

The 33rd meeting of the Least Developed Countries Expert Group was held in Sao Tome, Sao Tome and Principe, from 5 to 9 February 2018. At the meeting, the group developed its rolling work programme for 2018–2019. In addition, the group finalized its recommendations to the Subsidiary Body for Implementation on updating the least developed countries work programme, and its consideration of needs related to adaptation arising from the Paris Agreement and the decisions adopted by the Conference of the Parties at its twenty-first session. The meeting included interaction with: officials from the Government of Sao Tome and Principe on the country’s work on adaptation; the secretariat of the Green Climate Fund on how best to support developing countries in accessing funding for the process to formulate and implement national adaptation plans; the Global Environment Facility and its agencies on their continued provision of support for the implementation of the least developed countries work programme, which includes the preparation and implementation of national adaptation programmes of action; and other relevant organizations on collaboration in providing support to the least developed countries.
