Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
The Least Developed Countries Report 2012 addresses the issues of remittance flows to LDCs and the potential role of diasporas in LDCs’ development. It argues that with the right policies and international support, LDCs could enhance the benefits from remittances and the knowledge and know-how accumulated in their diasporas. Using evidence and policy lessons from other countries, the report shows how LDCs could better harness remittances and diaspora knowledge to build their productive capacities.
Regarding LDCs’ recent economic performance, the Report argues that the uncertain global economic recovery continues to undermine the factors that enabled them to attain higher growth rates between 2002 and 2008. After a slight improvement in 2010, the group performed less favourably in 2011, signalling major challenges ahead. Moreover, if another global downturn dampens growth prospects for the developing economies, LDCs, as major commodity exporters, will be hard hit.
