will depend as to what criteria you are defineing it by
I don't think it can ever be as clear a one or the other its a bit of a grey area

Just because something belongs to the UK doesn't make it an MEDC, Britain used to "own" lots of colonies in Africa and they certainly aren't MEDCs :/ I know this is a really old post but I googled Monserrat LEDC and it was one of the first hits, didn't want people to think that was true lol!

Just because it is a BOT doesn't mean it's an MEDC. It is actually classed as an LEDC.

i have always thought of it as an LEDC but defining a country as either MEDC or LEDC can be hard as it is not always clear as to which they belong, but i would go with LEDC in this case.

It's being phased out at the minute by a lot of geographers, as something that is getting old.
Less Developed and Developed is one that is seeming to be growing in popularity.

MDC and LDC is better as it remove economics, but still very much the same as LEDC and MEDC as it is hard to define a clear border. Same for Richer and Poorer.

With Developed and Less Developed you are able to set a boundary, which is why I think it is liked. It is very much, as you'd expect, by Development Geographers as they can set the border, in what is a very subjective area of Geography.

I would defiantly say I is a less developed country. If you research the island it has minimal infrastructure etc and the management regarding the eruption was a tad rubbish.. It may be an oversees territory of the United Kingdom, however, this is irrelevant as the immediate effects were clearly not felt in the UK. Monserrat residents were the second largest national migration to the UK in history, so help was given but hardly enough to class the tiny island as developed!

development as a whole is hard to define as it is so unclear but for the purpose of a case study or a exam i would say LEDC

Without a doubt its an LEDC over a MEDC. Its infastructure wasn't great before the big eruption but now its a mess.

definitely an LEDC
im not too sure on the terminology of LEDC and MEDC though, when I did a level last year we were told to use HIC and LIC (high income countries and low income countries) because the terms LEDC and MEDC were the old terms for it, so you might want to double check that to be safe

Whoever Lukas is... He is wrong, and therefore stupid. Montserrat is classified as an LEDC for obvious reasons.

I do Environmental Science GCSE. They still call it LEDC and MEDC whereas Edexcel Geography now calls it LIC, MIC and HIC.
