The Least Developed Countries Report 2014

unctad-thumbThe United Nations Economic and Social Council reviews the list of “least developed countries” every three years, based on three criteria: per capita income; human assets; and economic vulnerability. The Least Developed Countries Report highlights three policy priorities as part of a post-2015 development agenda: mobilising resources for investment in such a way as to maximize their development impact; directing these resources towards economic activities that will contribute decisively to transforming their economies; and establishing macroeconomic policies that promote investment and demand growth rather than inhibiting them. Diversifying rural economies must also be a principal element of the transformation if poverty is to be eradicated. Read the full report here.
