The Rise of the South - Human Progress in a Diverse World

image of Human Development Report 2013
This report identifies more than 40 developing countries that have done better than expected in human development terms in recent decades. It analyzes the causes and consequences of these achievements and the challenges they face. Each of these countries has its own unique history. Yet they share important characteristics and face similar challenges. They are increasingly interconnected and interdependent and their peoples are increasingly demanding to be heard, as they share ideas through new communications channels and seek greater accountability from governments and international institutions. The report identifies policies rooted in the new global reality that could promote greater progress. With fresh analytical insights and clear proposals for policy reforms, the report helps chart a course for people in all regions to face shared human development challenges together, fairly and effectively.

Overview

One of the most heartening developments in recent years has been the broad progress in human development of many developing countries and their emergence onto the global stage: the “rise of the South”. This growing diversity in voice and power is challenging the principles that have guided policymakers and driven the major post–Second World War institutions. Stronger voices from the South are demanding more-representative frameworks of international governance that embody the principles of democracy and equity.
