2007/08 Human Development Report

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has just released the most recent edition of the Human Development Report. This year the report focuses on the issue of climate change (last year brought us an examination of water).

The UNDP is the UN's global development arm, which means that they work to promote development in a number of areas, focusing on Democratic governance, poverty reduction, crisis prevention and recovery, energy and the environment, and HIV/AIDS. Each year, they put out the human development report focusing on a particular area of concern in development.

In addition to the standard collection of statistics and country reports, this year's report also contains carbon footprint features.
