Sam L. - we had discussed this before but then reverted back to the less precise term because of different reasons. If we have an agreement between us, we can use the internationally more narrowly defined terms.

> As a development economist I want to raise a small point. The term “developing countries” is used nine times in the Draft. While the World Bank and others have dropped the term, it remains acceptable as a descriptor, but there may be a problem for its use here. In some instances disagreements could arise with regard to eligibility to apply based on what decides who is, or is not, a developing country.
> Other settings now tend to use the formal term Low- and-Medium-Income-Countries (LMIC) where countries are classified by the World Bank (WB). Other organizations (UN, IMF, WHO, etc.) sometimes produce slightly different rankings.
> I suggest that we either adopt LMIC, or state that the term developing countries means LMIC, or pick another reference list. We do not want a Mechanism to have to struggle, in some instances, with what is or is not a qualifying applicant country. (I note this still does not deal with occupied territories, breakaway states, and the other complexities of modern nationhood :-( )
