Abstract

Least developed countries (LDCs) in the Asia-Pacific region face severe structural impediments to growth and sustainable development. The majority of their population makes living from agriculture, including horticulture, livestock, fisheries and forestry, and the development of that sector is a key priority of action for their inclusive and sustainable development. Given their particular situation, LDCs in Asia-Pacific should consider an integrated strategy that uses intersectoral linkages and labour movements between agriculture and agro-industries to promote balanced and inclusive development.
