This year has seen a lot of global attention on human capital, especially on the scientific and global policy arenas.In other words, investment in innovation, hence investment in human capital, has a boosting effect in productivity and growth. The global map shows clearly that the developing world has a clear deficit in human capital, with majority of it falling either in the first or the second quartile.It will organize an annual summit for human capital during which leaders from governments and civil society whom the bank calls "champions of human capital" come together to discuss ways to protect the rights of future generations.The human capital index has moved from the classical adherence to education as the soul indicator of human capital improvement to a compound index of health and education indicators, including the probability of survival to age five, expected years of school, harmonized tests score, learning-adjusted years of schools and adult survival rate.Human capital must not be solely linked to economic productivity, but other important types of capital must be considered and equally studied, like inter alia, social capital, i.e. the wealth of social norms and networks, and cultural capital.
