The NIDA for LDCs will be constituted via reforms of the worldwide fiscal regimes which without delay impact improvement and poverty aid in LDCs, and during the layout of a brand new iteration of specific overseas help mechanisms for the LDCs geared toward addressing their particular structural constraints and vulnerabilities. expanding South-South cooperation, either inside of areas and among LDCs and massive, fast-growing constructing international locations, may also play a massive position

Example text

However, given that different LDCs are integrated into the global economy in dissimilar ways, the impacts of the crisis have varied considerably among them according to their structural characteristics. The slowdown in 2009 was particularly sharp in the oil- and mineral-exporting LDCs, in a few (but not all) LDC exporters of manufactures and in some tourism-dependent island LDCs. Despite the slowdown, in 2009 the LDCs as a group actually achieved a higher GDP growth rate than either the group of other developing countries (ODCs) or developed countries.

With the kinds of national policies pursued in the 2000s, the LDCs were unable to make the most of the opportunities presented by the boom. In particular, they were unable to promote a pattern of catch-up growth based on the development of productive capacities which would increase the resilience of their economies and set them on a more inclusive growth path. From a long-term perspective, after the prolonged decline of the 1980s and early 1990s, the LDCs started the new millennium with approximately the same level of real per capita income that they had in 1970 (see Box 1).

The chapter argues that the effects of the crisis in the LDCs are best understood in terms of a boom-bust cycle which has been typical of their development experience over the long term. The major policy implication is that LDCs need to promote new development paths and that a new international development architecture is required to facilitate this. The chapter shows that during the period 2002–2007, the LDCs experienced a strong economic boom, but their high rates of GDP growth were largely driven by external factors associated with a pattern of global expansion that was economically unsustainable and a pattern of national expansion which was not inclusive.
