The report constructs human development indicators for different provinces. This has led to identifi ed regional disparities in Human Development across provinces. The findings call for a greater attention at strengthening sectors that will generate employment opportunities for the poor, women and youth workers, promoting regionally spread and diversifi ed economic activities and creating an environment for the national private sector and small and medium enterprises to grow in a sustainable manner. It also makes a compelling case for a larger attention toward rural areas and people: that the quality of life of rural communities must rise and they should be socially, politically and economically empowered.
