Before graduation

How graduation works, information about your country’s LDC status and what to do in the years before you are considered for graduation

Activities

Before officially being identified for graduation, it is suggested that countries assess productive capacity and the impact of losing international support measures, particularly those related to trade and official development assistance. The suggested activities are ideas only, based on best practice and lessons from previous graduation cases. They are not part of the official UN graduation process
