Bangladesh has progressed in the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Human Development Index. The index value of Bangladesh has increased by 10.0006 compared to earlier. This picture has emerged in the ‘Human Development Report 2021-22’ released by UNDP on Thursday.

Bangladesh ranks 129 in this year’s index. The last published report before this was published in 2020. Bangladesh was ranked 133 out of 189 countries in the Human Development Report. And this year, Bangladesh has risen to the 129th position among 191 countries. However, in a report released today, UNDP noted that Bangladesh was 128 in 2020. As such, Bangladesh has taken a step back this time.

The other two major countries of South Asia are India at 132 and Pakistan at 161. Sri Lanka ranks best among South Asian countries on the Human Development Index. The country is currently 73rd.

UNDP-Bangladesh economist Nazneen Ahmed told Prothom Alo, ‘This progress of Bangladesh is promising. Because, the report reveals, the human development index has declined globally. The world is at that 2016 position, i.e. human development is six years behind. Bangladesh has progressed there. However, a major reason for Bangladesh’s progress is the increase in national income. If inequality continues to rise, it will be impossible to sustain this progress.’
