UNDP Egypt and Somalia receive awards for excellence in Human Development Reporting
Khalid Malik, Director of the Human Development Report Office has announced the recipients of the 2013 Awards for Excellence in Human Development Reporting.These awards, which are granted every few years, recognize thoughtful, innovative and influential human development reports from around the world.
This time, as in previous rounds, the external experts who comprised the review panel let us know there were a strong group of reports for consideration.
Over 700 reports have been released since the early 1990s and they have contributed positive change around the world. They have championed the importance of objective, evidence-based development reporting that puts people first, and engages and empowers the very citizens whose development we report on. Many of them have had demonstrable impact on policy making and the lives of people. The Human Development Report Office encourage everyone to take stock of the wealth of information and ideas contained in these reports.
The awards will be presented during the Global Human Development Forum in Dubai this November. The winning reports are:
Africa 2012: Towards a Food Secure Future
