Human Development Report 2006

Human Development Report 2006

Every year, many policy specialists and government officials eagerly await the annual Human Development Report issued by the United Nations Development Programme. Released in early November 2006, this year�s report was primarily focused on the issue of water, and they remarked, �unclean water is an immeasurably greater threat to human security that violent conflict.� Within its 440 page, the report investigates the underlying causes and consequences of this crisis, along with arguing for �a concerted drive to achieve water and sanitation for all through national strategies and a global plan of action.� Along with significant appendices, the report also contains special contributions from President Jimmy Carter, Gordon Brown, and UN Secretary General Kofi Annan.
