The 2019 Human Development Report (HDR 2019) to be released towards the end of this year, will focus on understanding relevant dimensions of inequality to people’s wellbeing. Against this background, the Human Development Report Office (HDRO) and the UN Office for South South Cooperation (UNOSSC) are jointly organising a consultation for the 2019 Human Development Report (HDR) on the topic of inequality in human development  building on the ongoing e-discussion on the South-South Global Thinker's Platform, and is aimed at maximizing stakeholder engagement and ensuring inclusive preparation of HDRs. It will also help in sharpening focus of the Report, the analytical work programme, and the Report process and most importantly seeking southern perspectives on this very important topic

The consultation will specifically aim to: (i) hear stakeholder’s perspectives and experiences from Southern-based think tanks relating to inequality and related sub-themes, identify broad contours, and scope on the specific issues; and (ii) discuss key policy options and promote buy-in among the stakeholders.
