UNDP Human Development Report 2021/2022: Mauritius outshines its African counterparts

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) released the Human Development Report 2021/2022 (the “Report”) in September 2022 and in which it highlights a general decline in the Human Development Index (HNI) fueled by global crises such as the Covid-19 pandemic, an impending food catastrophe as a direct consequence of global climate change and the Ukraine-Russia war.


Occupying the 63rd position worldwide, Mauritius is the only country in Africa to boast a “Very high human development”.   The HNI comprises 3 main components namely: longevity, education (with two indicators) and income per capita.  According to the Report, policies that focus on the Three I’s: investment, insurance and innovation will help people navigate uncertainties and thrive in the face of it.
