The 2013 Human Development Report – “The Rise of the South: Human Progress in a Diverse World” – was launched in Mexico City on Thursday by President Enrique Peña Nieto of Mexico and UNDP Administrator Helen Clark.

The 2013 Human Development Report examines the profound shift in global dynamics driven by the fast-rising new powers of the developing world and its long-term implications for human development.
