As part of a series organized by the UN Development Coordination Office (DCO), UNOSSC Director Ms. Dima Al-Khatib, Ms. Lila Pieters Yahia, UN Resident Coordinator in Mauritania, and Ms. Karla R. Hershey, UN Resident Coordinator in Bhutan, discussed how UN teams are helping overcome barriers in LDCs to leave no one behind.
Among others, financing challenges faced by LDCs were discussed, as well as solutions UN teams have brought to the table, including how South-South cooperation can play a catalytic role.
