National Human Development Report Qatar 2006


Qatar’s first NDHR offers a study of the state of HD in the country and identifies a number of challenges for the future. Some of the problems are of an economic nature such as the reliance of economic growth on oil prices, a weak private sector to lead development and the demographic issue of a small national population and low economic participation by this population. Other problems are linked to the need to upgrade potentials in the field of education and training, lack of growth of the civil society and the role of democracy as an effective system in public life. The report offers a set of policies to address these challenges in each sector within an integrated framework and comprehensive developmental perspective.
