– Inputs, consolidated paper, EGM, revised paper “It cannot be over-emphasised that what development implies for the developing countries is not simply an increase in productive capacity but major transformations in their social and economic structures.” (...) Eradication of poverty requires focus on countries where problem is most severe: LDCs Graduation pathways • Graduation requires generating income (GNI pc), building human assets (HAI) and/or reducing economic and environmental vulnerability (EVI) • Graduation related, but not identical to building productive capacity for sustainable development • Pathway I: Rapid growth through resource extraction. Small progress in HAI and EVI • Pathway II: Economic specialization and investments in human assets • Pathway III: Investment in human assets and (often slow) structural transformation • Pathways are no choice variable Main lessons - Pathway I • Angola, Equatorial Guinea • Oil drives rapid economic growth • Human assets remain very low, vulnerability high • Weak development governance is key constraint • Insufficient reinvestment of resource rent • Public expenditures misaligned with priorities • Risk of overinvestment in infrastructure • Budget rules and wealth funds work only if backed by strong governance • Vicious cycles: Resource dependence feeds weak governance and reduces urgency for diversification away from resources • Scope for industrial and sectoral policy limited (Dutch disease,…) Main lessons - Pathway II • Landlocked: Botswana, Bhutan • SIDS: Cabo Verde, Maldives, Samoa, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands • Income channeled into building human assets • Vulnerability remains high; exogenous • Good development governance main factor • Absence or restoration of conflict critical • Economic specialization: natural resources or tourism – Only some diversification, but difficult – Small linkages and employment effects – Persistent inequalities • Policies for harnessing external sources of finance for investments – FDI, ODA, bilateral agreements, remittances Main lessons - Pathway III • Larger economies: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Rwanda • State-led development • Slow structural transformation • Development governance built after war and conflict – Active State, ensuring coordination of economic activities • Agriculture and rural areas first • Successful capital accumulation • Innovative social services delivery • Trade preferences can work, but require basic capacities, ‘right’ market conditions and domestic policies Moving the work forward • Feed into UN process (HLS/HLPF/IPoA) • Wider dissemination (see later this week) • Utilize for capacity development – UN DESA and beyond (EIF,…) • Utilize for related work – UNCTAD productive capacity indicators – Others CDP Secretariat/UN-DESA Thank You Contact: Matthias Bruckner Committee for Development Policy Secretariat Department of Economic and Social Affairs United Nations email: brucknerm@un.org http:// www.un.org/en/development/desa/dpad
