KAMPALA – The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has published the 2019 Human Capital Development Report (HDR) and its Human Development Index.
The HDR states that just as the gap in basic living standards is narrowing for millions of people, inequalities surrounding education, technology and climate change, have sparked demonstrations across the globe.
This year’s report is the first of a new generation of HDRs, pushing the boundaries as part of Next Generation UNDP to accelerate thought leadership and advance progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and beyond.
UNPD officials say the report will set out a new way to address inequality in the 21st Century.
Under the theme, “Beyond Income, Beyond Averages, and Beyond Today”, the report will be launched on Friday December 20, 2019 at Golf Course Hotel between 7:30 am to 10:00 am.
The launch will take the form of a High-Level Breakfast meeting attended by government officials, development partners, parliamentarians, heads of United Nations agencies, the private sector, the academia and civil society organisations and youth leaders.
