Thus, as the joint World Bank/IMF Global Monitoring Report 2010 states, “[a]bsent increased resources, these essential steps to provide desperately needed resources at the height of the crisis will imply a substantial shortfall in concessional financing over the next couple of years” (World Bank 2010c: 142). In addition, 20 LDCs remain in a situation of debt distress, or at high risk of debt distress, while debt vulnerabilities are likely to worsen in the wake of the global economic crisis in some others (IMF; 2010b).

Specific ISMs for LDCs include: adequate financing of the LDC Fund (LDCF), increasing technical assistance to LDC for incorporating climate adaptation needs into their national development strategies, constructive engagement in helping LDCs to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD), and improved access for LDCs to the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) as a means of overcoming the financial barriers that prevent LDCs’ access to renewable energy technology. The implementation and adoption of LDC proposals on transportation levies and carbon taxes, which call for various exceptions for LDCs, should also be supported.

The inadequacy of the one-size-fits-all approach to development is being increasingly recognized, resulting in the advocacy of a more context-specific approach to development based on country ownership. Theoretically, this should allow greater recognition of the specific structural weaknesses and vulnerabilities of the LDCs. There have already been major changes in the practice of policy conditionality, and countries have assumed a greater role in the design and implementation of their Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSPs).
