This report addresses the relevance of democratic governance for poverty reduction and the achievement of development goals in the most vulnerable of all the world's countries, the Least Developed Countries (LDCs). It includes country profiles for the 50 LDCs with extensive economic, social, and governance indicators. This publication also tackles the question of corruption, widely considered to be a primary impediment to development. Strong political leadership is instrumental to fighting corruption.
