RSVP required

Past Human Development Reports have shown living standards in most countries have been rising, and converging, for several decades now. Yet the 2011 Report projects a disturbing reversal of those trends if environmental deterioration and social inequalities continue to intensify, with the least developed countries diverging downwards from global patterns of progress by 2050. The world’s most disadvantaged people, further, suffer most from environmental degradation and disproportionately lack political power, making it all the harder to reach agreement on needed global policy changes. The Report outlines great potential for positive synergies in the quest for greater equality and sustainability, especially at the national level, and emphasizes the human right to a healthful environment, the importance of integrating social equity into environmental policies, and the critical importance of public participation and official accountability.

Please join us for a discussion of the report—its findings and recommendations—and how UNDP is working to address environment and energy issues.
