Over the past quarter-century impressive progress has been made in human development, enriching billions of human lives. Yet progress has been uneven, bypassing Millions of peoples. Who has been left behind? And why? The Human Development Report 2016 looks into these questions. It recognizes that in every society certain groups are far more likely to suffer disadvantages than others.

The report also looks to what societies should do to advance human development for everyone. It sets forward policy recommendations at the national level and also looks at ways in which the global development landscape could be made more effective in the fight to leave no one behind and achieve the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


About the Human Development Index (HDI): The Human Development Index is an indicator of the level of prosperity and development of countries. It is measured on the basis of life expectancy, education and economic status. The is measured since 1990 for the Human Development Report of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). In the latest survey in 2015 Germany was ranked No. 6 globally.


The report was launched on 21 March 2017. A German language version of the overview of the report (published by the United Nations Association of Germany) is provided.
