On February 20th, FIA attended the national launch of flagship publication – 2019 Global Human Development Report “Beyond income, beyond averages, beyond today: Inequalities in human development in the 21st century”. The event was organized by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Moldova.
Inequalities are the persistent virus of the century and new forms are emerging, according to UNDP’s Human Development Report.
Republic of Moldova has lost 10.4% of its human development due to inequalities and, currently, ranks 107 out of 189 countries and territories as per the Human Development Index (HDI). HDI measures national progress in health, education and income. Most inequalities in Moldova are derived from the inequalities in income (14%), inequality in life expectancy at birth (9.6%) and inequality in education (7.3%).
Addressing inequalities requires a mix of new inclusive policy measures, new partnerships and above all an understanding of “what really people need to be able to live long, health and productive life”. Governments, together with all relevant stakeholders at all levels, should unpack the complexity of inequalities, including going “beyond income and averages”, and identify and test innovative solution to curb inequalities in the country.
