UNDP’s Human Development Report Deems Ethiopia’s Growth Non-Inclusive

See original/source content:

Government and UNDP did not see eye-to-eye on the conclusions of the 2014 National Human Development Report, particularly with regard to inclusivity in development.

The United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP) National Human Development Report (NHDR) 2014 brought the government and the UN agency in direct confrontation when the report challenged the equitability of Ethiopia’s growth over the past 10 years.

The report, launched on Wednesday April 29, 2014 at the meeting hall of the UN Economic Commission for Africa’s (ECA) premises, brought President Mulatu Teshome (PhD) and Mekonnen Manyazewal, commissioner for the National Planning Commission of Ethiopia along with UNDP’s resident representative to Ethiopia, Eugene Owusu to share their perspectives on the report and expressing the long way they came in preparation of the document published 15 years after the last National Human Development Report was done.
