OPHI/UNDP Human Development Report Office Training in Oxford in February

OPHI and the UNDP Human Development Report Office are organising a course on the innovative aspects of the 2010 Human Development Report, with a particular focus on the new measures introduced by the 2010 Report, to be held this February. Demand for places has been high and 60 participants have been accepted to take part in the course, including UNDP staff from around the globe, as well as participants from National Governments, particularly national planning and statistics offices with roles liked to policy planning.

The course entitled “Concepts, Measurement and Policy Implications” will be taught by OPHI researchers at Eynsham Hall just outside Oxford, United Kingdom from 28 February – 11 March 2011. The course will offer an in-depth review and policy-oriented introduction to key human development concepts, measures and analytical tools, and policy implications introduced in the Human Development Report 2010. There will be a particular focus on the new measures, a topic on which country and staff demand has already been expressed.

The course is being organized in two phases over two weeks. The first week offers an introduction to concepts and measures, and the second week is devoted to more detailed discussions and practical exercises on HD measurement methodologies and techniques.
