On Friday, 17th June, 2016 the School of Economics in collaboration with United Nations Development programme held a public lecture on Human Development,” Visions for the future, lessons from 25 years of progress”. The lecture was facilitated by Dr.Selim Jahan who holds a PhD in Economics from McGill University, Canada. Dr.Selim Jahan is the Director of Human Development report Office (HDRO) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), New York. He has been involved in compiling Global Human Development reports over the years.

Before the lecture, Dr.Selim paid a courtesy call to Prof.Paul K.Wainaina (Vice chancellor, KU). The public lecture was officially opened by Prof. Nelson H.W.Wawire (Dean, School of Economics, KU) who shared the School of Economics profile. The dean briefed the participants on degrees and master programs offered in the three departments in the School. He particularly singled out that Master of Economics (Cooperation and Human Development) as a programme developed with Human Development issues in mind. He reiterated that there is a shortage of skills in this area and urged Dr.Selim to collaborate with the school through his office to build capacity in this area. At present several units in the Human and development area are being taught by professors from University of Pavia, Italy.

Addressing members of staff and students, Dr.Selim emphasized the role of UNDP in advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. He also pointed out that UNDP provides expert advice, training, and grants support to developing countries, with increasing emphasis on assistance to the least developed countries. He promised to follow up the collaboration issue through a memorandum of understanding.

Over two hundred members of staff and students from the Schools of Economics, Business and others in University attended the lecture. Dr.Perez Onono (Chairperson Department of Applied Economics) expressed gratitude to Dr.Selim, the University management and all participants for attending the public lecture.
