Main Elements of the Problem and History of the Issue.
General Parties Involved.

A country can be classified as an LDC if they have low income, a Low Human Assets Index, a High Economic Vulnerability Index, and a population size no larger than 75 million. They must meet all four of these requirements.

In most LDCs, the U.N. has countries send as much aid as possible. The major powers usually send the most help. Whether it be in economic aid, building teams, or food. Small units of peacekeeping forces often have to accompany because of the desperation often found in those receiving the aid.

LDCs are steadily making progress on all fronts other than some landlocked countries but these 48 continue to lack in the socioeconomic category. Whether it be low income, a Low Human Assets Index, a High Economic Vulnerability Index, and a low population size. The problem with landlocked LDCs is that they...
