Vienna Launch of the Human Development Report 2013

World Population contribution to the HDR will be presented by Wolfgang Lutz

The HDR 2013 entitled 'The Rise of the South: Human Progress in a Diverse World' examines the profound shift in global dynamics that is being driven by the fast-rising powers of the developing world and the implications of this phenomenon for human development. Looking ahead at the critical long-term challenges now facing the international community, from inequality to sustainability to global governance, the 2013 Report identifies policies and institutional reforms reflecting the new reality of the rising South that could promote greater human progress throughout the world for decades to come. Wolfgang Lutz and Samir KC produced a background paper contributing to Chapter 4 of the HDR 2013.

The main launch of the Report was on 15 Mar 2013 in Mexico City. The HDR launch in Vienna is organized collaboratively by the Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs, the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, and the United Nations Information Centre Vienna. Among the speakers will be World Population Program Leader Wolfgang Lutz, who will give a keynote entitled "The Human Resources Based Approach for Human Development".
