Over five days of the LDC5 Conference in Doha, world leaders will gather with the private sector, civil society, parliamentarians, and young people to advance new ideas, raise new pledges of support, and spur delivery on agreed commitments, through the Doha Programme of Action.

At the Conference, it is expected that specific initiatives and concrete deliverables will be announced that will address LDC-specific challenges.

The Fifth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries (LDC5) is a once-in-a-decade opportunity to accelerate sustainable development in the places where international assistance is needed the most - and to tap the full potential of the Least Developed Countries helping them make progress on the road to prosperity.

To deliver our mission INSTITUT DE DIPLOMATIE PUBLIQUE as a non-state actor in diplomacy facilitates and promotes the contribution of stakeholders from different sectors at the global level, including at United Nations special events.

Currently, we are more than 250 scientists (Doctor/Ph.D. members) and practitioners (Professional members) from diverse disciplines and perspectives spread across more than thirty countries working together as one network of public diplomats, seeking sustainable solutions for the world’s most pressing challenges.

We provide an inclusive and accessible space for the exchange of ideas, knowledge and experience, so that the voices of our experts can be heard in the United Nations.

For this purpose, the Institute regularly receives special accreditations for conferences, summits, meetings, or other events organized by the UN.

Doctor/Ph.D. Members and Professional Members of the Institute are invited to indicate their interest to participate in the LDC5 Conference.

In order to collectively prepare for its self-organizing towards the Conference, our members have initiated a series of consultations, and dialogues, primarily within civil society as well as with other strategic stakeholders. The purpose of these discussions is to advocate for the thematic priorities that many have already begun to formulate.

By tapping into public diplomacy as an operational toolkit, especially as regards the role of science diplomacy and sustainable development diplomacy, the net result of non-state diplomatic practice could be to increase the resilience and reduce the vulnerability of less developed countries in face of both capacity constraints and the challenges imposed by transformation.
