UNDP Launces Asia - Pacific Human Development Report On 10 May,2012
UNDP is the United Nations global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 166 countries, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners. UNDP helps developing countries attract and use aid effectively.
he Asia-Pacific Human Development Report (APHDR), One Planet to Share, was launched on 10 May 2012 at GMT 07:00 in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The Asia-Pacific Regional Human Development Report (APHDR) is an important resource and instrument to explore critical development concerns. The Report informs policies and actions from a human development perspective, putting people at the centre of development debates. As a regional public good, the APHDR focuses on issues that are of common concern to several countries in the region, have sensitivities that are better addressed at a regional level, or have clear cross-border dimensions, calling attention to the fact that development challenges are no longer confined within geographicspaces.
In the run-up to Rio+20, the newly released Asia-Pacific Human Development Report takes a bold look at climate change and what can be done about it. Tackling head-on the issue of poverty reduction and human development, the Report argues that the option to grow now, clean up later no longer exists for developing countries. The Report reveals how the world's most dynamic region can prepare itself, produce and consume differently, build rural resilience and create cities for the future we want.
