Towards 2021/2022 HDR
Continuing the thread of the 2019 and 2020 HDRs, 2021/22 HDR carries forward a conversation centered on inequalities while integrating other important themes related to uncertainties in the Anthropocene: societal-level transformations, mental health impacts, political polarization, but also, crucially, opportunity. The Report will explore how uncertainty in the Anthropocene is changing, what is driving it, what it means for human development, and how we can thrive in spite of it. The report will argue that, in the end, doubling down on human development is central to a more prosperous future for all.
HDRO has planned multiple global, regional and thematic consultation meetings leading up to the planned release towards the end of the second quarter of 2022. Please follow that journey in the timeline below.
