REGIONAL PREPARATIONS

Three regional review meetings (Euro-Asia, Africa and Latin America regions) on the implementation of the Vienna Programme of Action will take place in early 2019. The reviews will undertake assessments of the implementation of the Vienna Programme of Action in the regions, provide an important opportunity for sharing experiences and lessons learned on challenges faced by LLDCs in each region and identify recommendations for appropriate strategies and mechanisms to address these challenges and accelerate the implementation of the VPoA. The regional meetings will come up with rich, practical and comprehensive suggestions that will feed into the global level preparations. UN Regional Commissions (ESCAP and ECE, ECA, ECLAC) will coordinate the regional reviews, in cooperation with OHRLLS.
