The special accreditation deadline for the Fifth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries (LDC5) has now been extended until 1 December, 9am EST(Eastern Standard Time), in light of ongoing extensive preparations for the Conference to maximise participation and inclusivity of all interested organisations.

Please apply immediately at https://indico.un.org/event/35735/

NOTE: Special Accreditation is for organisations that do NOT hold consultative status to the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

The next step will be registration of participants/representatives by the accredited organisations (both holding ECOSOC status and Special Accreditation). Registration will be required for both the official Conference as well as the Civil Society Forum. We will send the two separate links as soon as registration is open.

The official Information Note in relation to registration, visas, COVID-19 procedures and regulations, will be out soon. We will keep you informed immediately in this regard.
