UNDP Announces the Maldives Launch of 2020 Human Development Report

UNDP Maldives has announced the Maldives launch of the 2020 Human Development Report.

For the past 30 years, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has published the Human Development Report (HDR) as a way to critically analyze global development efforts by putting people at the center of the development process. The 2020 Human Development Report, ‘The Next Frontier: Human Development and the Anthropocene’ looks at how humanity can navigate this new age of humans as a dominant species, unpacking the relationships between people and the planet and showing how our impacts on the Earth interact with inequalities across societies.
