TITLE: Human Development Report 2010 : the real wealth of nations ; pathways to human development / United Nations Development Programme.
AUTHOR: United Nations Development Programme.
PUBLISHED: New York, NY : United Nations Development Program, 2010.
DESCRIPTION: xiii, 227 p. : ill. ; 28 cm.
NOTES: Released biennially by the United Nations Development Programme, the Human Development Report offers informed commentary and analysis of issues that affect humans across the world. In past years, the report has dealt with civil wars, starvation, economic growth, gender inequality, climate change, and a wide range of pressing matters. Released November [4, 2010], this 20th anniversary edition of the Human Development Report is a retrospective on the past several decades and identifies often surprising trends and patterns with important lessons for the future. These varied pathways to human development show that there is no single formula for sustainable progress -- and that impressive long-term gains can and have been achieved even without consistent economic growth. The 236 -page report focuses on a new tool, Oxford's Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI), a new measure designed to capture the severe deprivations that people face at the same time. The MPI reflects both the incidence of multidimensional deprivation, and its intensity -- how many simultaneous deprivations people experience
NOTES: The 20th Anniversary edition is a time to take stock, reflect and move forward. It rigorously reviews the past two decades of human development trends and challenges, and provides newly available data and supplementary indices weighing the effect of income inequalities, gender disparities and household-level poverty.
