Ratajová, Natalie ; Hasman, Jiří (advisor) ; Preis, Jiří (referee)
The thesis examines the success of meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on the example of 46 countries among least developed countries in the world. Specifically, the thesis focuses on SDGs dedicated to health - SDG 3.1. and SDG 3.2. and their indicators. Based on the research questions, key strategies for achieving the goals in the monitored group of countries are presented. The following chapter is an evaluation of selected parameters and their indicators. Six most successful countries are selected based on the last research question (the countries with the most progress in the worst-performing indicator). Their example shows the established interventions that have helped the countries the most. The motivation for this focus of work is the topicality and lack of other documentation of this topic. The SDGs are now in their midst, and few literature analyzes SDG 3, which I have chosen in the least developed group of the world. The text is based on the findings of the SDGs and their context in the monitored countries. For the needs of the thesis, a lot of data from various data sources were processed, from which research questions were evaluated. The analysis confirmed the improvement of values in the monitored SDG indicators in the least developed countries of the world. However, there...

Hrubcová, Gabriela ; Sirůček, Pavel (advisor) ; Palatková, Monika (referee) ; Jiránková, Martina (referee)
The thesis aims to analyze the issue of the position of developing countries in the global economy and suggest the possibilities of their further development. Such a broad topic is progressively specified with focus on the group of Least Developed Countries. The key area of research in terms of the growth alternatives and poverty alleviation is tourism, due to its considerable potential. Dissertation briefly presents issues of growth and development, its context, trends and the significant development indicators. Consequently, the thesis deals with the group of Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and their potential, current position in the global economy, outlook and trends. Moreover, it focuses on the topic of development in relation to the current concept of the international organization agenda and the Unite Nations decision to declare 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. In this context, it is determined whether tourism can be considered as a main driver of growth and development and as a tool for poverty reduction. A case study aims to analyze the economic effects of tourism in LDCs according to the Economic Impact Research and uses the cluster analysis. As a result, countries are grouped into a number of clusters based on the specific components. The final chapter presents a proposal for the model of further (tourism) development in LDCs.
Theoretical Approaches and Practical Solutions of the Socio-economic Problems of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs)
Harmáček, Jaromír ; Jeníček, Vladimír (advisor) ; Kašpar, Václav (referee) ; Varadzin, František (referee) ; Foltýn, Jaroslav (referee)
The thesis focuses on theoretical and empirical analysis of economic growth and its implications for economic and social development of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs). The thesis proceeds from the assumption that economic growth is the necessary (but not sufficient) condition for economic, social and human development of societies and nations. In context of the LDCs, this assumption can be modified: it is assumed that it has been the low average rate of growth in the long-run that is associated with the complex social and economic issues of LDCs. The primary objective of the thesis is to verify this association within the LDCs, then to investigate factors that have been the major determinants for economic growth in (African) LDCs. From the perspective of theory the thesis is grounded in theories and models of economic growth that are crucial for researching factors of growth and its implications for development. The thesis focuses also on in-depth analysis of the LDCs both from the classification and statistical perspectives. The latter one is based on comparisons with selected groups of states within the World economy.

Significance of tourism for the economies of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs)
Kaliberka, Jan ; Kašpar, Václav (advisor) ; Vošta, Milan (referee)
The Least developed countries represent the weakest and poorest segment of the Word economy. Members of this this specific group are countries with the lowest incomes per capita, low human development and high economic vulnerability. Dealing with problems of these countries including extreme poverty isn't successful in the long run. Many advanced, developing as well as the LDCsstart to concentrate on tourism development, thank to its wide impacts on the economy and regional development. Also the UN strengthens its support to the LDCs in sustainable tourism development. The goal of this thesis is to analyze the significance of tourism for the economies of the LDCs and its potential for boosting the socio-economic development in these countries and for solving their problems includingtha alleviation of poverty.
Economic growth possibilities of the poorest countries
Hrubý, Vít ; Lipka, David (advisor) ; Minárik, Pavol (referee)
The thesis deals with the topic of economic growth of the poor, least developed countries. For this group of countries, which includes most of sub-Saharan Africa, is characteristic that for the last half-century this group has shown no significant economic growth per capita. This fact is surprising at first glance if compared with other economic development groups of the developing world. Economic differences between the least developed countries on the one hand, and emerging and developing countries on the other hand, are increasing despite efforts by international development agencies. I intend to answer the question, what are the causes of poor economic performance of the least developed countries.

The main goal of this work is to point out why is Nepal one of the poorest countries. Consequently I will try to propose possible alternatives to solve the current situation which will be effective.
