The Development Research Institute and IPSA are happy to host Roberta Gatti, Chief Economist, Human Development Practice, World Bank. Dr. Gatti will discuss the Human Capital Index, an initiative widely featured in this year’s Word Development Report.

The Human Capital Project is a World Bank flagship initiative aimed at accelerating progress in human capital outcomes. It was launched together with the Human Capital Index (HCI), a cross country metric that ranks human capital outcomes around the world.  In her talk, Roberta Gatti will describe the index and the process that led to its creation and discuss challenges and opportunities for reform towards better human capital outcomes.

Wine and cheese will be served.
