In Memory of Dr. Inge Kaul (1944-2023)




We are saddened to learn of the passing of dear colleague and friend Dr. Inge Kaul. She led the Human Development Report Office together with Mahbub ul Haq when it was first set up. She was then director of UNDP's Office of Development Studies, followed by advisor roles at the Hertie School, the Center for Global Development and various governmental, multilateral, and non-profit organizations. In addition to her work on the first Human Development Reports, she published extensively on global public goods, effective multilateralism and international cooperation financing. We will treasure the memory of her warmth, dedication and contributions to human development that continues to inspire the development sphere.
