14 June 2013
The workshop on Measuring Human Development organised jointly by HDRO and GIZ that took place on 14 June, 2013 in Eschborn, Germany aimed to discuss the new proposals and recommendations for revising the set of human development indices that resulted from the second review process with specific emphasis on relevance and application of these indices in developed countries. Furthermore, other (European) measurement approaches and initiatives recently developed in the quest for effective measuring of human progress and well-being were presented to enrich the debate.
The workshop was organized as a small expert forum with 30 participants from a range of sectors, representing both the users and producers of statistical indicators. Four sessions, each having three invited presentations and discussion, focused on (i) issues in measuring human development; (ii) complementing the HDI: Bringing in the concept of well-being and sustainability; (iii) accounting for inequality; and (iv) measuring poverty.
