Competitiveness Impacts of Climate Change on LDCs' export trade

This issue of Commonwealth Trade Hot Topics considers the competitiveness aspect of the impact of climate change on exports from African LDCs. While LDCs are known to be vulnerable to climate change consequences, relatively little attention has focused on trade impacts and the implications for export-led growth and development prospects. Key issues discussed in this brief are of particular importance for consideration in the Fourth United Nations Conference on LDCs due to be held in Istanbul, Turkey, in May 2011.
