The world has gone back five years in human development, according to a new United Nations report.

For the first time in its 32-year history, the UNDP Human Development Index, which measures a country’s health, education and living standards, fell for the second year in a row, returning global human development to 2016 levels. .

At the same time, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) warns that without a major change in course, we could be headed for even more deprivation and injustice.

“It means we are dying sooner, we are less educated and our incomes are declining. With those three parameters, why are people desperate and wanting?” I can see if you’re frustrated and starting to worry about the future.”

Over 90% of countries around the world will record a decline in HDI scores in 2020 or 2021, with over 40% of countries seeing declines in both years.

Latin America, the Caribbean, sub-Saharan Africa, and South Asia have been hit particularly hard, while European countries appear to be less affected.

“The world is grappling with one crisis after another. While the cost of living and energy crises tempt us to focus on quick solutions such as fossil fuel subsidies, urgent relief is our delaying the long-term systemic changes that have to be made.” “We are collectively paralyzed in making these changes.”

“In a world defined by uncertainty, we need a renewed sense of global solidarity to tackle our common and interconnected challenges,” he added.
