Planning the Opportunities for a Youthful Population

image of National Human Development Report 2018 - Timor-Leste

World leaders are increasingly acknowledging that Gross Domestic Product (GDP) alone cannot provide a full picture of a country’s progress. Enhancing human development and wellbeing requires people accessing the opportunities and means to live healthy, happy and satisfactory lives. The highly innovative 4th National Human Development Report for Timor-Leste puts the well-being of young people, three quarters of the country’s population, at the center of the development agenda. By measuring the subjective well-being of youth aged 15 to 34 across eight aspects of life based on a nation-wide survey, this report provides an excellent opportunity for decision makers to implement targeted policies and strategic investments based on an in-depth understanding of youth’s aspirations, attitudes and behaviors.

Executive summary

The Human Development Report (HDR), pioneered by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in 1990, has influenced the development debate worldwide for more than a quarter of a century by placing the richness of human life above the richness of the economy. The global HDR appears every year, and national and regional HDRs are prepared periodically. The Timor-Leste National Human Development Report 2018: Planning the Opportunities for a Youthful Population is the fourth national HDR of Timor-Leste.
