Exceptional economic performance in some of the world’s poorest countries fails to reach broad populations; global food crisis will likely worsen situation, says The Least Developed Countries Report 2008 released here today by the UN Information Centre. The highest rate of economic progress in the world's 50 least developed countries (LDCs) in the last 30 years has not been enough to prevent their total number of poor from increasing, a new UNCTAD report reveals. Three fourths of those living in these nations continue to survive on less than US$2 a day. Recent rising food costs are threatening to undercut the modest progress achieved, the report adds. The report, published by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), finds that the main reasons strong economic growth fails to translate into hefty improvements in well-being are the types of growth and the models of development that LDCs have been following. These approaches mean only limited segments of the population benefit from economic expansion. Job creation has been limited, which deprives most people of direct increases in their earnings. Another factor making social progress difficult is strong population growth. (UN Newsletter)
