UNDP’s Human Development Report (HDR) - “Beyond Income, Beyond Averages, Beyond Today: Inequalities in Human Development in the 21st Century” - was launched today in Bogota, Colombia with the presence of Iván Duque Márquez, President of Colombia, Achim Steiner, UNDP Administrator, and Pedro Conceição, Director, Human Development Report Office and Lead Author of the Report. The report talks about the importance of addressing the many different kinds of inequalities in the world today, and measures countries’ progress beyond just economic growth, with the ultimate aim of unlocking people’s full potential.
This is a land of paradoxes. It has an illustrious past but a troubled present. Its soil is rich, yet the people are poor. They face countless hardships but remain optimistic. This is the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.
