About the product
Produced in connection with the global midterm review of the Vienna Programme of Action for LLDCs 2014-2024, this publication explores structural transformation for poverty reduction in Asia’s landlocked developing countrites (LLDCs), including related policy making and financial mobilization. To accelerate structural transformation in line with achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable development, Asia’s LLDCs must focus on economic diversification and reduced dependency on extractive industries. These priorities require active policies to incentivize both the development of manufacturing and high-productivity services and the integration of the private sector into regional value chains. This report thus aims to address policy gaps and development challenges and to equip policy makers of Asia's LLDCs – including those least developed countries (LDCs) – with relevant sectoral knowledge and expertise.
