The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) regularly publishes the Human Development Report (HDR). The first Human Development Report was published in 1990 and since then, twenty-four HDRs have been produced. The HDRs, highlighting a people-centred approach to development and producing a broader measure of human well-being, have significantly influenced over the years the content and the tone of the global development discourse and informed policy making at the national level. The PNUD organised a consultation on the 2016 UNDP Human Development Report, hosted by the OECD. The theme of the 2016 Human Development Report will be Human Development – the Way Ahead. The report will seek to address the following three fundamental questions:
- How can the frontiers of knowledge on the human development framework be extended to address new realities and new questions we are facing now and are likely to face in future?
- How can the human development measurements be recast the light of the above and the 2030 Development Agenda?
- How can the human development policy options be brought together towards leaving no one behind and continuing to advance?
Matthieu Boussichas, Programme Manager at Ferdi, took part in this consultation as a panelist.
