The PPHP series is the flagship publication of the Pardee Center. Conceptualized and funded by Frederick S. Pardee, the series explores prospects for human development worldwide out to 2060. Each volume in the series considers a key aspect of human development, and explores how that aspect has evolved globally and locally over time, how it appears to be unfolding in the near term, how we might prefer it to develop, and how we can better ensure it develops in desired directions going forward. Each includes end tables with global, regional, and country-level forecasts through 2050 across the IFs issue areas (i.e., demographic, economic, energy, agriculture, environmental, and sociopolitical). The volumes, published by Paradigm Publishers and Oxford Press India, are available for free download below. The five volumes are: Reducing Global Poverty (2009), Advancing Global Education (2010), Improving Global Health (2011), Building Global Infrastructure (2013), and Strengthening Governance Globally (2014).
Each volume in the PPHP series concludes with a table of country and regional forecasts covering population, poverty and income, health, education, infrastructure, and governance variables. These tables represent the output of the IFs Base Case scenario. The volumes also explores a range of alternative human development scenarios in addition to the Base Case.
