Cabo Verde records slight rise in Human Development Index

Praia, Dec 10 (Inforpress) – Cabo Verde recorded a slight positional rise in the Human Development Index, from 128th to 126th, with a coefficient of 0.647, which ranks the archipelago above the average of average human development countries.

This information was presented to press by the interim resident representative of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), Boubou Dramane Camara, in the presentation of the Human Development Index report 2019, launched today in Bogota, Colombia.

As he explained, this “slight progress of the country is accentuated mainly by an increase in the years of schooling per inhabitant.” As pointed out, the figure of 0.647 places Cabo Verde above the average of the group of average human development countries (0.634) and the countries of sub-Saharan Africa, but in the meantime “still remains inferior” to the group of developing island state countries ( 0.723).

He said the 2019 report “articulates the rise of a new generation of inequalities, the return of education, but also linked to technological change and climate change in the world.
