On March 14th, the UNDP released the 2013 Human Development Report, entitled “The Rise of the South: Human Progress in a Diverse World”. It examines the radical shifts in global dynamics driven by the rise of the emerging powers, and their implications for human development.
It identifies over 40 countries in the South which have done better than expected in terms of Human Development over the past decades. The report analyses the factors behind their achievement, and the challenges they face now and in the future.
