Most developing countries have made dramatic progress in health, education, and basic living standards in recent decades, with many of the poorest countries posting the greatest gains, according to the 2010 Human Development Report. But patterns vary greatly, with some countries losing ground since 1970. Introducing three new indices, the 20th anniversary edition of the Report documents wide inequalities within and among countries, deep disparities between women and men, and extreme multidimensional poverty in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. Join us for a discussion of the report with an expert panel including its lead author.
