Summary: The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Pakistan National Human Development Report (NHDR) 2023-2024 reveals that more than 54.3 percent of Pakistan’s population lacks internet access due to inadequate digital infrastructure and affordability. The report indicates that nearly half of Pakistan’s districts have low Digital Development Index (DDI) rankings, underscoring the importance of equitable access to digital technology for improved human development outcomes. The report emphasizes a strong correlation between districts with better digital transformation and higher human development outcomes, suggesting that without addressing the digital divide, Pakistan’s human development goals may remain unfulfilled.
