The concept of LDCs originated in the late 1960s and the first group of LDCs was listed by the UN in its resolution 2768 (XXVI) of 18 November 1971.   A country is classified as a Least Developed Country if it meets three criteria:
Poverty  (adjustable criterion: three-year average  
GNI  per capita of less than  US $992, which must exceed $1,190 to leave the list as of 2012)

vulnerability  (based on instability of agricultural production, instability of exports of goods and services, economic importance of non-traditional activities, merchandise export concentration, handicap of economic smallness, and the percentage of population displaced by natural disasters)
