The World Affairs Council presents Reducing Vulnerability: UN Human Development Report

SAN FRANCISCO - July 22, 2014 - PRLog -- San Francisco, Calif. – The World Affairs Council presents a lecture by Khalid Malik, director of the United Nations Human Development Report, on August 19th at 6:30 PM at the World Affairs Council in San Francisco. Malik will share key findings of the new report, as well as discuss why a human development approach is incomplete unless it incorporates vulnerability and resilience into the analysis.

The Human Development Reports have been commissioned and published by United Nations Development Programme since 1990 as an intellectually independent, empirically grounded analysis of development issues, trends, progress and policies. The report’s ultimate goal is to help advance human development; therefore it places as much emphasis on health, education, gender equity and the expansion human freedoms and abilities as on economic growth.

Tickets are free for members and are priced at $15 for non-members and $5 for students. Tickets may be purchased online at
