Summary

According to the concept of Human Development, it is the wellbeing of humans, not just economic factors, that should be at the core of a society’s development. In this light it is both the expansion of human possibilities and the more-qualitative satisfaction of their needs that drives progress. Various UNDP documents and reports, like the ‘Bulletin on Human Development for Parliamentarians’, provide a clear definition of what the goals of human development are. They highlight that ‘The public policy goal is to enable the extension of human choice’.
