Summary "The twenty-first century is witnessing a profound shift in global dynamics of unprecedented speed and scale, driven by the fast-rising powers of the developing world. What are these countries doing right? What are their biggest challenges in the years ahead? How will this dramatic reshaping of world politics and economics affect the wealthy industrial North, as well as the poorest nations now clustered at the bottom of the Human Development Index? UNDP's widely praised 2013 Human Development Report, The Rise of the South: Human Progress in a Diverse World, addresses these questions by analysing more than forty countries in the developing world that have posted unusually rapid human development gains in recent decades, drawing heavily on background research commissioned from eminent economists, demographers and social scientists. This companion volume to the 2013 Human Development Report presents nine of those research papers."--Publisher website
