The report “Informe Nacional sobre Desarrollo Humano 2013 del Programa de las Naciones Unidas para el Desarrollo” –  the National Human Development Report 2013 of the United Nations Program for Development (UNPD) – was released on Thursday.

The UNPD, located in San José, is the United Nations’ global network advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life.

In Costa Rica, UNPD activities are mainly aimed at promoting sustainable human development, with a strong focus on achieving economic growth.

The Human Development Index – going beyond income
Each year since 1990 the Human Development Report has published the Human Development Index (HDI) which was introduced as an alternative to conventional measures of national development, such as level of income and the rate of economic growth.

The HDI represents a push for a broader definition of well-being and provides a composite measure of three basic dimensions of human development: health, education and income. Between 1980 and 2012 Costa Rica’s HDI rose by 0.7% annually from 0.621 to 0.773 today, which gives the country a rank of 62 out of 187 countries with comparable data.

The HDI of Latin America and the Caribbean as a region increased from 0.574 in 1980 to 0.741 today, placing Costa Rica above the regional average.

The HDI trends tell an important story both at the national and regional level and highlight the very large gaps in well-being and life chances that continue to divide our interconnected world.
