The challenge for development is to identify the best route to unleash people’s entrepreneurial spirit – to take risks, to compete, to innovate, to determine the direction and pace of development. Every institution – and every policy action – should be judged by one critical test: how does it meet the genuine aspirations of the people? This is the vision national and global decision-makers must consider if the 1990s are to emerge as a new watershed in peaceful development – and if the 21st century is to see the full flowering of human potential all over the world. It is fitting, therefore that this year’s Human Development Report has people’s participation as its special focus.

Trends in human development

The 1980s were, in many ways, a decade of the people. All over the world, people had an impatient urge to guide their political, economic and social destinies. The democratic transition in developing countries, the collapse of socialist regimes and the worldwide emergence of people's organizations—all were part of a restless wave of human aspirations. Frustrated at times, in many places still in chains, the human spirit soared in the past decade.
