Human Capability Development Program Plan

January 2021

The goal of the Human Capability Development Program (HCDP), which is part of the Saudi Vision 2030 reform program is to build the Kingdom’s prosperous and bright future through a vibrant society, a thriving economy and an ambitious nation. The Human Capability Development Program aims to ensure that Saudi 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 Saudi Arabia's competitiveness.
