"The United Nations recognizes 49 least developed countries (LDCs): low-income countries that suffer most from structural handicaps to growth and so deserve special treatment from the international community. Here Patrick Guillaumont--who for the past ten years chaired the expert group for identifying LDCs at the UN Committee for Development Policy--strengthens the case for special treatment by examining the category's rationale, its history and its grounds in growth economics."--Page 4 of cover

When Instability Increases The Effectiveness of Aid Projects by Patrick Guillaumont( )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors assess the effect of economic instability on the success of projects funded by the World Bank using the outcome of the projects, which is a notation of their overall success determined by the Bank's Independent Evaluation Group. It has been argued in macroeconomic studies that aid effectiveness is higher in vulnerable countries because it dampens the negative effects of shocks. The authors show that this finding is not inconsistent with the observation that the success of the projects is lower in an unstable environment. Instability, in particular the instability of exports, harms aid projects as it harms the rest of the economy, while the success of projects decreases when the total amount of aid received increases, due to absorptive capacity limitations. But this decrease is slower when instability is higher, showing a positive effect of aid through its stabilizing impact. The authors find the same results keeping only the projects funded by nonconcessionary loans, which suggests that the cushioning effect of aid extends not only to aid funded projects but to whole sets of projects. Corroborating macroeconomic findings, their results lead to the same conclusion that more aid should be allocated to more vulnerable countries, in spite of the lower success of the projects in an unstable environment: project evaluations cannot include the macrostabilizing effect of the aid delivered through projects

Achieving the Istanbul Programme of Action by 2020 : tracking progress, accelerating transformations by LDC IV Monitor (Organization)( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Achieving the Istanbul Programme of Action by 2020: Tracking Progress, Accelerating Transformations is the second contribution from the LDC IV Monitor - an independent partnership set up to assess the outcome of the Fourth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries (UN LDC IV) with a view to accelerating the delivery of the Istanbul Programme of Action (IPoA). The volume highlights recent critical achievements and missed opportunities for the LDCs in the context of an unfavourable global economic environment and inadequate delivery of global commitments. Along with this, it focuses on four specific themes: structural transformation and export diversification in the LDCs; prospects of graduation of countries from the LDC group; implications of the 2030 Agenda in view of LDC concerns; and new challenges facing LDCs in their pursuit for achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Monitor's earlier contributions included a set of two reports tracking the state of implementation of the IPoA - a volume on Analytical Perspectives and a Synthesis Report which captured the broad messages and key recommendations
