UNDP Report Shows Fake Progress in Nepal
UN offices in Nepal are closing at a rapid pace. Nepalis are tired of the phony progress claimed by the UN while they ride around in expensive Land Cruisers and get nothing done.
Blogdai's extensive contact with UN officials and staff in Nepal has left a split impression of their personnel: They are either too young and inexperienced to make a difference and are just using Nepal as a "classroom;" or they are older, burned out officials on the downside of their careers. Either way, they are bad for Nepal.
So, rather than fix the problem, the UNDP decides to "fix" the results of their most recent Human Development report:
Pathetically, the UNDP has now decided that real "progress" in Nepal can now be miraculously measured simply by changing measurement indexes:
The report -- 20th anniversary edition -- has used new data and methodologies. For instance, it uses gross national income (GNI) per capita, replacing gross domestic product (GDP) per capita to include income from remittances and international development assistance.
So congratulations Nepal! This new report says that every one of us is getting rich from aid money thrown at us. Of course, we can't help ourselves in this regard, but no matter, the UN comes out smelling like a rose.
