Affirming human development: 20 years on

  • 1990 Human Development Report

    • “People are the real wealth of a nation.”

    • Introduced Human Development Index: Composite of health, education and income.

  • We argue that the human development approach makes a difference to:

    • Defining success

    • Measuring inequality and poverty

    • Designing development policies

The hdi and beyond l.jpg
The HDI and beyond over 40 years

  • New HDI

    • HDI 2.0

    • Need added focus on process freedoms, justice and global constraints.

    • Three new indices

    • Inequality Adjusted HDI

    • Gender Inequality Index

    • Multidimensional Poverty Index


Changes to the human development index l.jpg
Changes to the Human Development Index over 40 years

  • Dimension indicators:

    • Literacy is replaced by Mean Years of Schooling.

    • GER is replaced by expected years of schooling.

    • GDP is replaced by GNI

  • Aggregation formula

    • HDI is now the geometric mean

    • Upper bounds set to observed maxima

    • Lower bounds set to subsistence levels.

  • The human development approach matters:

    • For our understanding of development.

    • For our measurement of inequality and poverty

    • For our thinking about policy prescriptions.

  • Answering many questions about development requires aggregation across dimensions

    • The HDI is one alternative and is meant to initiate a discussion.
