Least Developed Countries (LDCs) have much to contribute to forging a new global agreement on development to replace the Millennium~Development Goals after 2015. But there is a significant risk that LDC positions and perspectives will get insufficient attention as the post-2015 negotiations move forward. Individual LDC negotiating power is weak, but as a group they can be powerful. This paper, prepared by an independent group of experienced development~practitioners from LDCs, explores global development issues of most relevance to LDCs and offers suggestions on common positions that~would help LDCs assure that their development objectives are effectively incorporated into the post-2015 framework and goals.
