Regional Dialogue on Rethinking Human Development for today’s world: Voices from Asia-Pacific

10 November
07:00  – 08:00 GMT

Since its introduction, the Human Development Report has been influential in broadening the scope of the concept of development by pointing decision-makers to the multi-dimensional nature of development. Fundamental shifts are now taking place in how we understand ourselves and our connections to local and global societies in the light of new technologies, socio-political realities and deep environmental changes.

In early 2020, and at the height of the first wave of the global pandemic, the ISC invited a wide variety of experts, and its members, to explore rethinking human development. The result was a new publication, Conversations on Rethinking Human Development and its accompanying multi-media website (both will be online from 6 November 2020).

This webinar is part of the Global Relay on Rethinking Human Development, complementing a high-level dialogue on 10 November and a series of other regional dialogues to explore the findings of this project, and start a new journey of dialogues around Rethinking Human Development for today’s world.
