China has already overtaken Japan as the world’s second biggest economy, lifting hundreds of millions out of poverty in the process. India is actively working to reshape its future with new entrepreneurial creativity and social policy innovation. Brazil has become an engine of growth for all South America, while reducing inequalities at home through antipoverty programs that are emulated worldwide.
Turkey, Thailand, South Africa, Mexico, Indonesia and many other dynamic developing nations have also become leading actors on the world stage, offering important policy lessons and valuable partnerships for the South as a whole, including today’s least developed countries. Looking ahead at the critical long-term challenges now facing the international community, from inequality to sustainability to global governance, the 2013 Report identifies policies and institutional reforms reflecting the new reality of the rising South that could promote greater human progress throughout the world for decades to come.
The 2013 Human Development Report includes special contributions on the topic from Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen, Japan International Cooperation President Akihiko Tanaka, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and Turkey’s Minister of Development Cevdet Yilmaz, among others.
The 2013 Report will feature a new Human Development Index (HDI) as well as the Report’s three complementary indices: the Inequality-adjusted HDI, the Gender Inequality Index (GII) and the Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI).
The early 2013 launch date represents a return to the Reports’ traditional annual calendar, with publication in the first part of the year. Reversion to the original HDR publication schedule permits inclusion of the most current statistical indicators in the HDI, as these become available from the main international data providers in the previous year’s final quarter. This schedule provides greater opportunities for discussion of the Report’s key findings and messages over the course of the year.
