In past decades, there has been significant gains in human development levels in almost every country; but millions of people have not benefited from this progress. Who has been left behind and why? The Human Development Report 2016 ’Human Development for Everyone’ looks into these two questions. It recognizes that in every society certain groups are far more likely to suffer disadvantages than others and identifies deep-rooted, and often unmeasured, barriers to development.
The app was developed by the Sierra Leonean technology company, iDT Labs, and funded by the US Department of State, specifically the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs through the UNDP project, “Promoting Transparency in Sierra Leone’s Judiciary”.
This report provides both technical and social analysis of the triggers and root causes of the 14 August mudslide; and proposes vulnerability reduction recommendations for sustainable landslide risk management – in Sierra Leone, in general, and in Freetown, in particular.
UNDP has had a presence in Sierra Leone since 1965, working in partnership with the Government of Sierra Leone, development partners, UN agencies, civil society and local communities, contributing to inclusive growth, sustainabily, and efficient democratic governance.
