Maximizing Opportunities Peru
The objective of this NHDR is to introduce the Human Development paradigm to Peruvian citizens. The Report includes the Human Development Index calculated for the first time at a provincial level. It attempts at finding the root causes of poverty in the country and finds that higher quality of life and more equity could be achieved through a better use of Peru's multiple potentialities within a Human Development perspective. To that end, the NHDR presents a conceptual framework as well as an empirical analysis of the country's potentialities.
