 Developing country - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The United Nations allows each nation to decide for itself whether it will be designated as "undeveloped" or "developing" (though many economists and other observers ignore the UN rule about self-designation).
Developing countries are in general countries which have not achieved a significant degree of industrialization relative to their populations, and which have a low standard of living.
The application of the term 'developing country' to all of the world's least developed countries could be considered innappropriate in the cases of a number of poor countries, due to the fact that they are not improving their economic situation as the term implies, but have experienced prolonged periods of economic decline.

 Global Warming and Developing Nations
Developing nations are caught between a rock and a hard place in the global warming debate.
Developing countries face a difficult decision, whether to sacrifice their economic development for protection against possible ecological problems in the near future.
As developing countries build their economies, frequently heavily dependent on manufacturing and energy-costly industries, they increase the risk that they will be ill-affected by global climate changes.

 Asia Times -
The failure of the talks is regarded by the developing nations in Africa and Asia as a signal of their arrival as a new force to be reckoned with in the global economic stakes.
This solidarity among developing nations was in sharp contrast to the past when similar groupings cracked under pressure from developed nations, which customarily have dominated the direction of previous negotiations under a veil of secrecy.
There is already serious and growing concern about the tendency of developed nations to negotiate bilateral trade treaties with poorer countries of their choosing, at the time of their choosing, to their advantage.

 Conservation Role of Developing Nations
Increasingly developing nations are adopting environmental plans both to look good in the eyes of international financing organizations, and in finally realizing the adverse affects of deforestation for their own economies and peoples.
Developing governments could significantly reduce deforestation by changing land title procedures so deforestation is not favored over the maintenance of productive forest.
Developed countries are tired of the rhetoric from wealthy developed countries urging them to preserve forests but not coughing up the cash to turn words into action.

 Brazil's Lula rallies developing nations - (United Press International)
Lula's efforts Monday to rally developing nations to his agenda is not the first time that Brazil has played a leading role in trying to level the economic playing field shared by wealthy and developing nations, calling on the latter to work together to improve their shared plight.

 CNN - World Bank: Few developing nations geared for Y2K bug - January 27, 1999
Developing nations are more vulnerable to the Y2K bug because, in general, they are more dependent on fewer and older computing systems, according to the World Bank.
In a statement issued Tuesday, the World Bank said only 15 percent of 139 developing nations surveyed by bank experts were found to have taken concrete steps to correct potential Y2K problems.
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Citizens in developing nations could find their lives at risk because their governments have not adequately prepared for the so-called Y2K computer bug, the World Bank has warned.

 USTR - 10 Ways Global Trade Negotiations Would Benefit Developing Nations
Given the prominence of agriculture in the economies of many developing nations, reducing tariffs would be perhaps the single greatest contribution that new negotiations can make to poverty alleviation in the developing world.
But in order for developing nations to seize the full benefits of trade, they must build up their institutional, physical, and human capacity.
New global trade negotiations would generate approximately $90 billion-$190 billion a year in higher incomes for developing nations, according to study by Joseph Francois of Erasmus University in Rotterdam.

 Antibiotics Often Misused In Developing Nations
NEW YORK, Sep 04 (Reuters) -- The frequent misuse of antibiotics in developing countries is a key contributor to the emergence and spread of drug-resistant infectious diseases, according to a report in the September 5th issue of the British Medical Journal.
These nations also need to establish more medical laboratories, so health workers can both determine when antibiotic treatment is necessary and monitor the appearance of new drug-resistant infections.
The availability of effective antibiotic treatments is critical in developing countries, where infectious diseases are leading causes of death, the researchers note.

 e-OTI: How Real Is the Internet Market in Developing Nations?
These are yet to take off in developing nations, and even the much-hyped WAP does not seem to have delivered in many parts of the world, though Japan's i-Mode is often touted as a good example of breaking the PC stranglehold on the Net market.
Much of e-commerce infrastructure involves progressive moves on the legislative and regulatory fronts by government agencies and industry organizations, but the Internet seems to have become a political football in many developing nations, with various government agencies vying with one another for control of Internet traffic and revenues.
But while all governments of developing countries have taken a tentative first step in opening up Internet access via local points of presence, they have not gone much beyond that in terms of promoting government usage of the Internet or increasing diffusion and lowering access costs in remote parts of the country.

 USATODAY.com - Developing nations call for more aid, trade
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Leaders of developing nations called Wednesday for more foreign aid and freer trade to help poor countries develop, warning at a U.N. summit that chronic poverty could fuel regional conflict.
Jamaica's prime minister, Percival James Patterson, speaking for the Group of 77 developing nations, complained that richer nations have failed to keep promises to stop the outflow of money from poor countries for debt payments and other transfers.

Finally, let us come to a conclusion about what prescription developing nations must follow in bettering the lives of their citizens and in turn creating an improved world for all members of our global community.
Within the context of developing nations, the cultural, political, and economic realities of each country are often very different.
Following these recommendations and providing for significant time for the development of human capital, leadership, legal and financial systems, and industry a poor country will have a good chance at developing into a competitive economy that is able to provide its citizenry with jobs, education, and a chance at a good life.

 Refuting objections to a Global Rural Network (GRNet) for developing nations
One of the hopes for networking in developing nations is that by bringing education, health care, news, entertainment, contact with the outside, employment, etc. to rural areas, the quality of life may rise to a point where migration to crowded cities will be diminished.
Anyone with experience in developing nations is justifiably skeptical of government projects; however, IPTO decisions were not made by government bureaucrats, but by visionary faculty members from universities who were brought in for temporary assignments.
Developing nations cannot afford high–speed connectivity — low–cost store–and–forward technology is more appropriate technology for a poor, developing nation.

In particular, we have theorized that the level of socioeconomic development should have a negative effect on the coefficients; that the level of family planning program effort should interact with socioeconomic development; and that the ~main" effect of family planning programs should be negative, with the interactive effect positive.
For the EF inter- cepts, the relationship with socioeconomic development is positive, regardless of which among the three measures defined earlier is used.
For the EF intercepts, the sign of the socioeconomic development effect is positive as hypothesized, but again the variability across countries is not highly systematic.

 Forefront Fall 2004
By developing, demonstrating, and implementing an affordable ICT network infrastructure—one that can be deployed and operated as a sustainable local business—we believe we can empower villagers to solve their problems themselves; in essence, provide a modern version of that fishing pole.
Many feel that the developing world has more immediate needs than an ICT infrastructure—food, clean water, and health care, for example.
So development and deployment must involve true partnerships with local and willing communities, step-by-step testing, iterative improvement, and a long-term perspective.

 Developing nations watch Thailand's bold healthcare plan csmonitor.com
By correcting this bias toward hospitals over primary care, which is common to many developing nations, government planners want to encourage people to seek care close to home.
Thailand's bold experiment with universal health coverage, an expensive privilege enjoyed by a minority of countries, could prove a model for other developing nations, who are watching closely.
Nations such as Korea and Taiwan that do provide full coverage are significantly better off than Thailand, which has a per capita GDP of just over $2,000.

In the United States and other developed countries, where Pap tests are widely available and easily accessible, deaths from cervical cancer have plunged in recent decades, even in the presence of high HPV rates.
Campaigns against cervical cancer in developed countries can trace their success to the availability and accessibility of trained clinicians and modern laboratories and medical equipment, and to pervasive and sustained public education campaigns targeting women and health care providers emphasizing the importance of regular and routine screening.

 Strategy 8: Debt Retirement and Debt for Nature
With some developing nations paying 30% to 40% of their foreign exchange earnings on servicing debts, they are not in the position to import goods from developed countries.
Devaluation of developing nations' debts has given rise to an opportunity to retire substantial amounts of debt at a fraction of their face value.
The amount needed to retire the major portion of the developing world's debt is about 13% of the annual interest payments on the US government's debt, or 3.8% of the world's total annual military expenditures.
