31.01.2020 | Launch of the Human Development Report 2019 in Bonn

Almost 30 years since its inception, the Human Development Report remains a powerful voice. This year’s report deals with inequalities in the 21st Century and how they weaken social cohesion and economic growth, and damage people’s trust in government, institutions and in each other. When taken to extremes, they bring people onto the streets.

By looking beyond income, beyond averages, and beyond today, the report presents analysis, ideas and policy options to tackle inequality’s drivers, recognizing that many inequalities are the symptom of an unfair system rather than the cause.

Given the relevance of the topic, we will have a presentation of essential findings of the Human Development Report 2019 by the lead author Pedro Conceição, an interactive panel discussion as well as a session how inequality is affecting people and communities on the ground.
