The 2010 UNCTAD LDC Report: A Call for Action


  • Richard Jolly

    () (University of Sussex, Sussex.)


The World Bank and the IMF have not yet recognized the category of least developed countries (LDCs) nor their common structural needs. Obtaining this recognition should be made a major point for discussion and decision at the Istanbul LDC Conference in 2011 along with the analysis and recommendations contained in the UNCTAD 2010 Report on LDCs. A professional meeting before the official conference might help pave the way to a new approach.
