ABSTRACT

COVID-19 and the Least Developed Countries   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Covid-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] threatens to undo progress achieved towards sustainable development by the least developed countries (LDCs) over recent decades. Even before the current crisis, LDCs were unlikely to achieve the SDGs [sustainable development goals], which emphasizes as a core principle 'leaving no one behind', including the most marginalized countries. Any further obstacles mean the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will almost certainly be missed without far-reaching policy responses. This Policy Brief reviews some of the main health, social and economic impacts of Covid-19 on LDCs and makes a series of policy recommendations."
