In 2020 the ISC is partnering with UNDP to start a global discussion on Rethinking Human Development, gathering voices from across the world to answer some of the following questions:
1) How could we rethink our conceptual understanding of human development?
2) What are the major emerging challenges to human centred development in the world today?
3) How can the human development approach inform public debates and decision makers about current and future challenges?
4) What would be a meaningful and useful definition of human development – for our changing world – according to you?
The Asia Pacific Webinar on Rethinking Human Development will be part of ISC's Global Relay in the project.
