2009 UN Human Development Report Available Now

Human development is a concept "about putting people at the centre of development" and "about people realizing their potential, increasing their choices and enjoying the freedom to lead lives they value". The United Nations Development Program has issued its annual Human Development Reports since 1990 to explore the challenges of poverty, gender, democracy, human rights, cultural liberty, globalization, water scarcity, climate change, etc.

The 2009 Report is now available through the UNDP website. Of particular interest to this blog's readers will be country/region reports of China (ranked 92), Japan (ranked 10), the Republic of Korea (ranked 26) and Hong Kong (ranked 24).
