The Human Capability Development Program aims to ensure that citizens have the required capabilities to compete globally by instilling values and developing basic and future skills, as well as enhancing knowledge. The program focuses on developing a solid educational base for all citizens to instill values from an early age, while preparing the youth for the future local and global labor market. It also focuses on upskilling citizens by providing lifelong learning opportunities, supporting innovation and entrepreneurship culture, and developing and activating policies and enablers to ensure KSA competitiveness. The HCDP will be officially launched in the third quarter of 2021.
The Human Capability Development Program is one of the newly refreshed Vision 2030 programs. It was created to develop citizens' capabilities, prepare them for the future, and support them to seize opportunities. The program will focus on instilling values, developing basic and future skills, and the enhancing knowledge in a variety of fields. This ensures citizens participate effectively in the ongoing local economic, social, and cultural developments while also competing in the global labor market.
The human capability ecosystem has undergone many successful transformational changes including continuation of the educational processes and activities during Covid-19 pandemic. Several digital platforms have been launched including the virtual kindergarten and "Madrasati". On the other hand, research, development and innovation ecosystem output has increased significantly in terms of the number of research publications and global partnerships. For instance, the Kingdom was ranked 14th in the number of COVID-19 publications.
