Navigating Uncertainty in Human Development

February 9 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

On a global scale, uncertainty has taken on many faces – the war in Ukraine, a decline in the global Human Development Index, economic instability, and climate disasters, among others – which is leading to a myriad of disruptions in day-to-day living.

As stated within the 2021-2022 UNDP Human Development Report, “The hero and the villain in today’s uncertainty story are one in the same: human choice.” How can our continued choices influence our world of tomorrow?

As part of Canada’s International Development Week, AKFC and Cooperation Canada are hosting an event centered on moving forward in uncertainty. The 2021-2022 UNDP Human Development Report will serve as the basis for an important discussion amongst policy makers and senior leaders in international development, on uncertainty and the responsibilities we all have in advancing human development.

Mr. Pedro Conceição, Head of the Human Development Report Office and Lead Author of the report, will deliver a keynote address to highlight the key themes of the report, followed by his participation in a panel discussion. The panel will delve into some of the report’s framing of uncertainty and the proposed way forward.

Keynote Speaker

Pedro Conceição, Director of the Human Development Report Office, UNDP
