“THE RISE OF THE SOUTH: HUMAN PROGRESS IN A DIVERSE WORLD”

United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has launched its 2013 Human Development Report, The Rise of the South: Human Progress in a Diverse World”. According to UNDP, “The South is developing at a pace unprecedented in human history, with hundreds of millions of people being lifted out of poverty in developing nations and billions more poised to join a new global middle class.”

As expected the “BRICS” nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) are becoming major forces in the world’s global economy, but more surprisingly the nations of Bangladesh, Chile, Ghana, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, Republic of Korea, Rwanda, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, and Vietnam are among the human-development high achievers highlighted.
