Latin America is in a paradoxical situation: it performs the best in the world in development but fails to take off. Inequalities persist and have grown as well. They are often combined with severe weather. Unlike other southern regions, the image of hunger and extreme poverty is not clear. Latin America appears to be in a more advanced stage of development. Indeed, the average HDI in Latin America is 0777 as against 0435 for Sub-Saharan Africa. In East Asia, it is 0740. Haiti has suffered all the ills of underdevelopment.
