New Human Development Report 2023/24


The new Human Development Report 2023/24, under the United Nations Development Programme, is now available. It is titled Breaking the Gridlock: Reimagining cooperation in a polarized world and assesses the risks associated with the uneven development progress underway, and the resulting rapid increase in inequality and political polarisation, for which urgent action is needed.

“The widening human development gap revealed by the report shows that the two-decade trend of steadily reducing inequalities between wealthy and poor nations is now in reverse. Despite our deeply interconnected global societies, we are falling short. We must leverage our interdependence as well as our capacities to address our shared and existential challenges and ensure people’s aspirations are met,” said Achim Steiner, head of the UN Development Programme. “This gridlock carries a significant human toll. The failure of collective action to advance action on climate change, digitalization or poverty and inequality not only hinders human development but also worsens polarization and further erodes trust in people and institutions worldwide.”
