What is the Almaty Programme of Action for Landlocked Developing Countries?

The Almaty Programme of Action was adopted in 2003 as the United Nations’ response to the growing recognition by the international community of the special needs and challenges faced by the landlocked developing countries in achieving their development goals. The Programme’s objective is to establish a new global framework for developing efficient transit transport systems, taking into account the interests of both landlocked and transit developing countries, that will help LLDCs overcome their inherent geographical difficulties and support their efforts to eradicate poverty and sustain economic growth.

The Almaty Programme of Action recognizes the direct link between transport, international trade and economic growth and aims at ensuring fuller and more effective integration of LLDCs into the global economy.
