UN Report

The 2023/24 Human Development Report, released by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), bears the title “Breaking the Gridlock: Reimagining Cooperation in a Polarized World.” This comprehensive report sheds light on the deteriorating challenges of global inequality and political polarization. Particularly concerning is their adverse impact on economic growth, especially in least developed countrieslike Sierra Leone1.

At the unveiling of this significant publication, Fredrick Ampiah, the UNDP Resident Representative, underscored its importance and urged stakeholders to maintain an open-minded approach despite the stark realities highlighted. The report’s findings emphasize the multidimensional nature of human development and the need to establish resilient systems capable of effectively handling shocks1.

Kenyeh Barlay, the Minister of Planning and Economic Development, echoed this sentiment, emphasizing the importance of resilience in the face of challenges. However, it was the Honorable Vice President who provided an astute analysis of the global economic landscape. The Vice President’s recommendations, guided by the UNDP Economic Adviser, include:

  1. Increasing cooperation among nations.
  2. Prioritizing climate-resilient projects.
  3. Empowering women and young people.
  4. Leveraging digital advancements for lasting progress1.

The launch of the UNDP Human Development Report serves as a call to action, urging collaborative efforts to address urgent global issues and foster meaningful cooperation in an increasingly divided world
