Lima, June 23, 2022. In the next session of the decentralized event Rumbo a PERUMIN, Francisco Santa Cruz, coordinator of Human Development Reports for the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), will make a presentation about the human development index (HDI) values in the regions of Apurímac, Cusco, and Puno, from both a historical and a future perspective.
There will also be a panel discussion with renowned experts, including Fausto Salinas Lovon, partner at Salinas & Tamayo Law Firm and former president of the Chamber of Commerce of Cusco (CDC); Víctor Andrés Ponce, director of El Montonero portal; and Luis Vargas Barbieri, director of Minas y Petróleo weekly journal and general manager of G y G Servicios Generales.
The HDI is an indicator used to measure the development of countries and regions in a way that reflects the actual situation of the population. To do so, the HDI measurement is based on three basic aspects, namely: life expectancy, education, and income.
This indicator is expressed as a value between 0 and 1, 1 being the highest score. In 2019, Peru’s HDI was 0.77, ranking 79 of 189 countries.
To find out about the evolution of the HDI values in Apurímac, Cusco, and Puno, we invite you to participate in the conference to be held on June 30, at 7:00 p.m., as part of virtual Mining Thursday. The conference will be streamed to the Facebook accounts and the YouTube channels of the Peruvian Institute of Mining Engineers and PERUMIN 35th Mining Convention.
Rumbo a PERUMIN is a decentralized virtual event that promotes a multidisciplinary, technical, and democratic discussion about mining-related matters and about the opportunities the industry offers for the development of the regions of Peru.
This event is a prelude to PERUMIN, the most important mining convention in Latin America, which will be held in-person at its traditional site at Cerro Juli Convention Center, in Arequipa, from September 26 to 30.
