The Least Developed Countries Report 2002
The UN has identified 49 nations as being 'least developed countries' (LDCs) in terms of low GDP per capita and a high degree of economic vulnerability. This report is based on a new set of poverty estimates which enable comparative analysis of the relationship between poverty, development and globalisation. The report finds that extreme poverty is pervasive in most LDCs and is highest in those LDCs dependent on primary commodity exports. Most LDCs are caught in an international poverty trap, and the cycle of economic stagnation and poverty is being reinforced by international trade and finance relationships. The report argues that current national and international poverty reduction strategies are not grasping the opportunities for sustained economic development, and an alternative approach is suggested. A supportive international environment is required which recognises the interdependence between the socio-economic marginalisation of the poorest countries and the increasing polarisation of the global economy. This should include the delivery of more effective aid and debt relief, as well as a review of international commodity policy.
Globalization and the Least Developed Countries
One of the most notable changes in the world economy during the past three decades has been the diverging trends in the growth of the developing countries. This book examines the opportunities open to the least developed countries as they design their strategies to accelerate growth and alleviate poverty.
Tourism Poverty and Development
Poverty alleviation is high on the global policy agenda, its importance being emphasised by its place as the first of the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals. As a potentially significant source of economic growth in developing countries, tourism may also play a major role in poverty reduction and alleviation under the right circumstances. The incorporation of tourism into development policy and Poverty Reduction Strategies has special poignancy for those Least Developed Countries where natural resources exist to support a tourism industry and there are limited development alternatives. This book offers a holistic, explicit and detailed introduction to the relationship of poverty and tourism within the context of developing countries. The book is divided into distinct sections, progressing from an evaluation of the key concepts of poverty, tourism and development; to the causal factors of poverty; to the mechanisms of how tourism is being implemented in policy and practice to reduce poverty and finally to an analysis of the relationship between tourism to poverty alleviation in the future. The adopted analytical approach of the key themes is multi-disciplinary, incorporating tourism studies, human geography, political economy, economics, development and environmental studies. It integrates examples and original case studies from varying geographical developing regions including Africa, South Asian and East Asia and the Pacific, to lend practical insights into tourism’s role in poverty alleviation. The text will be of particular interest to higher education students from tourism studies, geography, political economy, environmental and development studies, and sociology backgrounds. It will also be of relevance to government and policy makers, alongside those who have a more general interest in poverty alleviation.
