Definition: Least Developed Countries (LLDCs)

Least Developed Countries (LLDCs) - "a statutory United Nations list of countries based on a low combined score for the following indicators: per-capita GDP, human development (life expectancy, per capita calorie consumption, primary and secondary school enrollment, and adult literacy rate), economic diversification, and population (see UNCTAD’s annual Least Developed Countries Report). These countries are supposed to receive the majority of the aid provided by DCs." - source: Economic Development 4th Edition by E. Wayne Nafziger
