Survive, Learn, Thrive: Strategic Human Capital Investments toward a more Prosperous and Inclusive Armenia (Inglês)

Human capital - the knowledge, skills, and health that people accumulate over their lives and that enable them to realize their potential as productive members of society - is an important contributor to the wealth of all nations regardless of their income status. Capital formation have negative implications for the economy. The 2013-2014 national competitiveness report of Armenia highlighted that insufficient human capital is a binding constraint to the country’s growth. As an early adopter of the Human Capital Project, Armenia has committed to making catalytic investments to accelerate progress towards increasing the future productivity of Armenian children by reducing their exposure to health and education risks. In this assessment, the Government of Armenia and the World Bank have charted a path from the challenges of today to the desired human capital outcomes of tomorrow as facilitated by the implementation of these catalytic interventions. These investments, designed in accordance with the Armenian context, will fund essential interventions aimed at increasing access to and improving the quality of healthcare, education, social protection, and jobs and at enabling the formation and activation of human capital. Human capital investments can address inequality of opportunity, stabilize demand during economic shocks, smooth consumption, and protect vulnerable groups during structural changes. Decisions taken today regarding investments in healthcare, learning opportunities, social protection, and labor market interventions will determine the ability of Armenian children and youths to compete in the global marketplace of tomorrow.
