The Programme of Action calls on the United Nations system to provide support to the implementation of the BPOA, and more specifically to facilitate follow-up actions for ensuring that the needs and problems of LDCs are addressed. It also calls on the UN system to support LDCs in strengthening cooperation between LDCs and other countries in their respective regions, and to monitor progress in the implementation of the BPOA. It is in this context that this progress report is prepared. The report benchmarks LDCs’ performance and progress vis-à-vis the Brussels Programme of Action. It also highlights, albeit briefly, ECA activities in supporting African LDCs meet the goals of the BPOA, and eventually graduate from the LDC category.
