An event to mark the dissemination of UNDP’s Human Development Report 2014, was held in Colombo on Friday.

The HDR 2014 aims to advocate for renewed measures to sustain and equitably distribute the dividends of development.

Senior representatives from government institutions, policy and research institutions and UN agencies were present at the event.

UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative, Subinay Nandy expressed these views:

[quote]People are the real wealth of a nation. The Human Development Report has had a profound impact on policies around the world. Even in countries facing adverse economic conditions, people’s health and education have greatly improved, and there has been progress not only in improving health and education and raising income, but also in expanding people’s power to select leaders, influence public decisions, and share knowledge. Yet, much more remains to be done in expanding choices, and improving well-being of all people in all countries and communities and for generations yet to come.[/quote]
