The 2019 Human Development Report (HDR) – entitled Beyond income, beyond averages, beyond today: inequalities in human development in the 21st Century – was launched on Monday, in Bogota, Colombia.  This year’s report shows that a new generation of severe inequalities in human development is emerging, even as the gap is narrowing, on many of the unresolved inequalities of the 20th century.  Achim Steiner, UN Development Programme (UNDP) Administrator, talks about the Human Development Report’s main messages to the world.
