image of The Least Developed Countries Report 2006

The Least Developed Countries are a group of 50 countries which have been identified as “least developed” in terms of their low GDP per capita, their weak human assets and their high degree of economic vulnerability. The 2006 Report focuses on the development of productive capacities for sustainable pro-poor economic growth strategies and an analysis of the progress made on some of the quantified targets of the Programme of Action agreed during the Third UN Conference on the Least Developed Countries.

Policy implications

The analysis and empirical evidence in the previous chapters have significant policy implications. The Report has sought to present the evidence in a comprehensive manner so that it can serve as a resource for policymakers and promote open policy dialogue both within the LDCs and between the LDCs and their development partners. Without seeking to pre-empt alternative locally-grounded interpretations, this final chapter draws some policy implications.
