This publication is addressed to the policy makers and their development partners and other stakeholders to generate constructive dialogues and exchange of information in shaping the future course of action in support of the development aspirations of the Asia-Pacific LDCs. It is a major contribution towards understanding the complex and evolving development challenges and gaps faced by the Asia-Pacific LDCs during 2001-2010. It is hoped that the analyses and policy options offered in this publication will assist the LDC leaders and other stakeholders in sketching a new programme of action by the Fourth UN Conference on LDCs for the benefit of some of the most vulnerable and marginalized countries in the world.

Reducing poverty and hunger by accelerating sustainable and inclusive development

The world’s least developed countries (LDCs) are the poorest and weakest members of the global community. These countries are the most vulnerable socially, economically, politically, and ecologically. Approximately 300 million people live in Asia-Pacific’s 15 LDCs. This represents nearly a quarter of the total population of the world’s low-income countries. Moreover, challenges here are only becoming more pressing, as the region’s share of the global population is rising, making it even more difficult to reduce poverty and hunger.
