HDF concerned over UN HD report


The Human Development Foundation (HDF) on Sunday has shown concern over the United Nations (UN) Human Development report in which Pakistan had dropped 25 places in the Human Development Index (HDI) rankings to 145 out of 187 countries during last one year.
HDF Chief Executive Officer Azhar Saleem in a statement said, “Income distribution has worsened and environmental degradation threatens future prospects of the country. This matter should be of great concern to Pakistan.” He said Pakistanis still suffer from inadequate incomes, limited schooling opportunities, and life expectancies far below world averages. Azhar said that the UN HDI measures poverty, literacy, education, life expectancy and other factors. He said Pakistan can achieve substantially higher ranking in this table if there is a coordinated effort by the government and various non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working in Pakistan.
