Human Development Report 2014

The annual Human Development  Report, launched by the United Nations  Development Programme (UNDP) on the 24 July of 2014 in Tokyo, warns that  2.2 billion people live in poverty or risk falling into poverty. Life cycle vulnerability receives particular attention in this report. The report calls for stronger and timely policies for social protection and universal provision of basic social services.

The latest UNDP estimates show that almost 1.5 billion people in 91 developing countries are living in multidimensional poverty, with overlapping deprivations in health, education and living standards. If setbacks occur then 800 million people fall back. Although poverty is declining overall, the universal provision of basic social services is crucial to increase people's resilience.
