Republic of Moldova – from Social Exclusion towards Inclusive Human Development

Republic of Moldova

The 2010/2011 NHDR addresses the roots of social exclusion, identifies socially excluded and vulnerable groups and provides specific recommendations on how to eliminate barriers to social inclusion for all. The process of transition that the Republic of Moldova experienced in the last 20 years has created both opportunities and challenges for the country’s people. But those opportunities often come at enormous social costs such as decline of the people’s real income, explosion of poverty in rural areas, growing unemployment, intensified migration and the reduced capacity of the social protection system to respond to social challenges.
