The 2012/2013 Philippine Human Development Report with the theme Geography and Human Development is the 7th in the series of Reports which began in 1994. It focuses on geography and human development and examines whether and how sub-national human development outcomes across time and space have been directly or indirectly influenced by physical and environmental processes, features and phenomena (and vice versa), and what policy issues arise if any.
The 2013 Human Development Report – "The Rise of the South: Human Progress in a Diverse World" – examines the profound shift in global dynamics driven by the fast-rising new powers of the developing world and its long-term implications for human development.
