"The Rise of the South: Human Progress in a Diverse World"

Release from the United Nations Development Programme: The 2013 Human Development Report will be launched on 14 March in Mexico City by President Enrique Peña Nieto of Mexico and UNDP Administrator Helen Clark.

The 2013 Human Development Report examines the profound shift in global dynamics driven by the fast-rising powers of the developing world – and its implications for human development.
The South is developing at a pace unprecedented in human history, with hundreds of millions of people being lifted out of poverty in developing nations and billions more poised to join a new global middle class.

It’s not only the so called BRICS that are at the forefront of the Rise of the South - Bangladesh, Chile, Ghana, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, Republic of Korea, Rwanda, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, and Vietnam are among the human-development high achievers highlighted.

An updated Human Development Index (HDI) will also be released in the 2013 Report. The HDI measures national progress in health, education and income.
