Trainings for LLDCs and transit countries

This year UN-OHRLLS gave two virtual trainings for policy makers from Landlocked Developing Countries (LLDCs) and transit countries.

The first one was on Strengthening Capacity to Develop Bankable Transport Infrastructure Projects for Enhanced Connectivity, took place on 6-8 April 2021 for the Africa and Latin America regions and on 18-20 May 2021 for the Asia and Europe regions. The second one was on Strengthening Capacity to Design and Implement Policies and Identify Solutions that Promote Transport Connectivity for the Achievement of the SDGs, held on 27 – 28 September 2021 for the Africa and Latin America regions and on 30 September and 1 October 2021 for the Asia and Europe regions.
