We have started our discussion of development by addressing very broad issues relating to the concept of development. However, much of the literature and thinking about 'development' focuses on economics. Indeed 'development' and 'economic development' have often been treated as synonymous concepts. The economic development of a country or society is usually associated with amongst other things rising incomes and related increases in consumption , savings, and investment. Of course, there is far more to economic development than income growth; for if income distribution is highly skewed, growth may not be accompanied by much progress towards the goals that are usually associated with economic development.
Developing countries were hit hard by the financial and economic crisis, although the impact was somewhat delayed. Every country had different challenges to master. The closer the developing countries are interconnected with the world economy, the crasser the effects. And the incipient recovery that is becoming noticeable is, for the time being, restricted to only a few countries and regions. The crisis was transmitted primarily by trade and financial flows forcing millions back into poverty. Attainment of the Millennium Development Goals is seriously jeopardised in many countries. Many developing countries did not and do not have the resources to stimulate the economy and protect their socially disadvantaged populations to the same extent as the industrialised countries.
Do you want to live in another country someday? Surely there will be many interesting experiences that you can get, yes! Have you decided which country you want to live in? Before deciding, do you know, if the countries in the world are divided into developed and developing countries? Indonesia itself is included in the category of developing countries. Developed countries are countries that already have high technology and an evenly distributed economic level. While developing countries are countries where the level of welfare of the population is still in the middle of developing level.
A developing country is a country with a less developed industrial base and a low Human Development Index HDI relative to other countries. There is also no clear agreement on which countries fit this category. The World Bank classifies the world's economies into four groups, based on Gross National Income per capita: high, upper-middle, lower-middle, and low income countries. Least developed countries , landlocked developing countries and small island developing states are all sub-groupings of developing countries. Countries on the other end of the spectrum are usually referred to as high-income countries or developed countries. There are controversies over this term's use, which some feel perpetuates an outdated concept of "us" and "them".
Following are some of the basic and important characteristics which are common to all developing economies:. An idea of the characteristics of a developing economy must have been gathered from the above analysis of the definitions of an underdeveloped economy. Various developing countries differ a good deal from each other. Some countries such as countries of Africa do not face problem of rapid population growth, others have to cope with the consequences of rapid population growth. Some developing countries are largely dependent on exports of primary products, others do not show such dependence, and others do not show such dependence.
Development is a concept that is difficult to define; it is inevitable that it will also be challenging to construct development taxonomy. Countries are placed into groups to try to better understand their social and economic outcomes. The most widely accepted criterion is labeling countries as either developed or developing countries. There is no generally accepted criterion that explains the rationale of classifying countries according to their level of development. This might be due to the diversity of development outcomes across countries, and the restrictive challenge of adequately classifying every country into two categories. For want of a country classification system, some international organizations have used membership of the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development OECD as a main criterion for developed country status.
The world is experiencing unprecedented demographic change 1. Since the early 20th century, the human population has increased from 2 billion to over 7 billion, and that figure is expected to reach 10 billion by the end of the 21st century 1. Other significant population changes have to do with new and varied fertility patterns including adolescent maternity , mortality, migration, urbanization, and aging. In this context, it is essential to describe the main features of population trends in the countries of the Americas in order to identify and analyze their implications for health. The importance of demographic dynamics is two-fold. First, demographic dynamics may be indicative of certain health issues such as trouble preventing, treating, and controlling communicable and noncommunicable diseases in places experiencing rapid, excessive population growth. Second, they can afford an opportunity to overcome such obstacles such as the development potential associated with the so-called demographic dividend.
Developing countries are countries with economies that have a low gross domestic product GDP per capita and rely heavily on agriculture as the primary industry. When it comes to regions of the world, developing countries have not quite reached economic maturity, although there's a wide array of different definitions. Learn more about developing countries, the varying definitions, and the purpose behind these classifications. A developing country is generally defined to a certain degree by its economic output. There has been much debate around where to draw the line between a developed and developing country, which is evident by the lack of a universal definition. For example, the United Nations has conventions for distinguishing between developed and developing countries, and the World Bank has stopped using such terms in favor of low-income economy, lower-middle-income economy, and so on based on gross national income GNI per capita.
Are countries at a low level of socio-economic development catching up with developed countries over time or rather falling further behind? Existing work on the subject is not conclusive, partially due to methodological differences. The aim of the paper is to carry out a broader analysis with longer time series and a more diverse set of indicators. The study further utilizes a probabilistic approach to extrapolate missing historical data for developing countries, so that the analysis can cover a full century starting in and ending with short-term projections to year The study finds that a majority of developing countries, and the population-weighted developing world as a whole, has reduced its lag in most indicators between and
Development in Turbulent Times pp Cite as. This chapter discusses the reasons why countries develop or remain poor. It examines the many reasons advanced for this and provides fresh perspectives on historical experience and the academic literature. It looks both backward over the past 70 years and forward to consider new factors shaping the development of nations and the roles of businesses, governments and individuals everywhere. How individuals and societies develop over time is a key question for global citizens. Too many people in the world still live in extreme poverty.
