The Rise of the South: Human Progress in a Diverse World

The United Nations Development Program; Human Development Reports. 

We, of the 21st century, are seeing an intense change in global dynamics, propelled by the fast-rising new powers of the developing world. 

"China has overtaken Japan as the world’s second biggest economy, lifting hundreds of millions of people out of poverty in the process.

"India is reshaping its future with new entrepreneurial creativity and social policy innovation.

"Brazil is raising its living standards by expanding international relationships and antipoverty programmes that are emulated worldwide.

"But the “Rise of the South” is a much larger phenomenon. Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey and other developing countries are becoming leading actors on the world stage. The 2013 Human Development Report identifies more than 40 developing countries that have done better than expected in human development in recent decades, with their progress accelerating markedly over the past 10 years."

We may not be aware of the implication of these shifts, however changes of such proportions will impact us in our homes, education, work, and the ways we perceive ourselves in world affairs.
