The State of Qatar and the United Nations signed an agreement on hosting the Fifth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries (LDC5) in Doha from Jan. 23 to 27, 2022. The signing ceremony was held at the headquarters of the State of Qatar's mission to the UN in New York.

HE Permanent Representative of the State of Qatar to the UN Ambassador Sheikha Alya Ahmed bin Saif Al-Thani signed the agreement on behalf of the State of Qatar and Under-Secretary-General and High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries, and Small Island Developing States Courtenay Rattray signed on behalf of the UN.

The convening of the LDC5 comes in light of the changing global scene and the dire consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially on the most vulnerable groups.

The State of Qatar aspires that the LDC5 will mark a milestone that responds to the unprecedented challenges that have placed an additional burden on the shoulders of the least developed countries and enhance their ability to confront these challenges and rebuild and recover from the pandemic and its multifaceted effects.
