Human Development Report 2020 | Arab States Regional Presentation & Discussion
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Human Development Report is being launched at a historical moment for the world and the Arab States region. Over the past year, the world has been gripped by the impact of multiple, interconnected crises – COVID-19, climate change, inequality – which show us that we are at an unprecedented moment in history, in which human activity has become a dominant force shaping the planet. The Report shows how the increasing pressures which humans have put on nature for many decades have brought the human race to an existential moment which calls for great transformation. The Report argues that we are in the age of the Anthropocene, or the age of humans, in which the defining challenge of our time is to seize the power and opportunities that we have to work with nature, not against it. Furthermore, the Report lays out the essential choices we must effect the transformations that are needed to “reset” our societies and build forward better from the COVID-19 pandemic. And it shows us how choosing to do things differently – making key changes in how we live, work and cooperate – have the power to put people and planet on a safe, equitable and sustainable pathway out of our existential climate emergency while bringing an end to poverty and inequalities. This is the next frontier for human development, and UNDP and the Malcolm H. Kerr Carnegie Middle East Center invite you to join us for the regional launch of the report & a conversation to explore the implications of the report for the Arab states region
