Dr. Fernando Aldaba, Dean of Social Sciences of the Ateneo de Manila University and Secretary of the Human Development Network, presented the Philippines’ 2014 Human Development Indices and Rankings during the Regional Launch of the 2015 Human Development Report last January 18, 2016 at the Manila Peninsula Hotel.

In his presentation, it can be concluded that the Philippines, compared to others, slightly improved in terms of human development, as its Human Development Index increased marginally from 0.664 in 2013 to 0.668 in 2014.
