Iceland Launch: HUMAN DEVELOPMENT REPORT 2020 - “The Next Frontier: Human Development and the Anthropocene”
For the first time in a relationship spanning 300,000 years, instead of the planet shaping humans, humans are shaping the planet. This is the Anthropocene: the age of humans. The 30th anniversary Human Development Report 2020 looks at how humanity can navigate this new age, unpacking the relationships between people and the planet and where we go from here, to transform pathways to human progress.

Join us at the launch and find out more – including how Iceland ranks in the Human Development Index – as UNDP’s Nordic Office, UNA Iceland and the Icelandic Ministry of Foreign Affairs invite you to join the virtual launch of the Human Development Report’s 30th anniversary edition on 27 May 2021.
