Global Launch of the 2021-2022 Human Development Report

Uncertain Times, Unsettled Lives: Shaping our future in a transforming world

We are living in uncertain times. The COVID-19 pandemic, now in its third year, continues to spin off new variants. Ongoing conflicts and crises across the world are causing immense human suffering, while climate and ecological disasters threaten the world daily.

So where do we go from here for a more hopeful future? How do we find new paths? And what is standing in the way of us moving there? The upcoming 2021/22 Human Development Report (HDR), “Uncertain Times, Unsettled Lives: Shaping Our Future in a Transforming World,” seeks to answer these questions.

The global launch of the 2021/22 HDR will be livestreamed from the UN SDG Studio in New York on 8 September 2022 at 9:00 EDT and feature eminent speakers including:

  • António Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General
  • Samia Suluhu Hassan, President of Tanzania
