Human Development Report 1990

image of Human Development Report 1990
This report is about people — and about how development enlarges their choices. It is about more than GNP growth, more than income and wealth and more than producing commodities and accumulating capital. A person's access to income may be one of the choices, but it is not the sum total of human endeavour. This report lays out a concrete priority agenda for better data collection that will enable the human development index to be used increasingly as a genuine measure of socioeconomic growth. It analyses the record of human development for the last three decades and the experience of 14 countries in managing economic growth and human development. It ends with a special focus on the problems of human development in an increasingly urban setting.

Defining and measuring human development

People are the real wealth of a nation. The basic objective of development is to create an enabling environment for people to enjoy long, healthy and creative lives. This may appear to be a simple truth. But it is often forgotten in the immediate concern with the accumulation of commodities and financial wealth.
