UNDP: Contradiction between human development and security

UNDP: Contradiction between human development and security

United Nations, Feb 8 (Prensa Latina) A new analysis by the UN Development Program (UNDP) on Tuesday showed that Human Development Index (HDI) does not necessarily imply a greater sense of security, even in the richest countries.

According to UNDP, the feeling of protecting population is below minimum in nearly all nations, while six out of seven people around the world suffer from a feeling of insecurity.

The new study provides data showing that nations reporting some of the highest levels of health, wealth and education show higher levels of anxiety than 10 years ago.

The data also show the need for immediate action as global life expectancy declines for the second year in a row due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and a worsening of all human development metrics.

Added to this factor is the serious threat of climate change, because even if there is a moderate reduction in polluting emissions, temperature changes could cause the death of 40 million people by the end of the century.

To address such a dissociation, the report called for strengthening international solidarity and forging a new development approach that enables people to live without fear, anxiety and indignity.

UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner stressed that most people have a sense of concern about the future, an impression worsened by the Covid-19 outbreak.

He assured that in the unbridled desire for economic growth, the natural environment destruction continues, while inequalities within and between countries surge.
