Human Development Indices and Indicators- 2018 Update
Human development is about human freedoms. It is about building human capabilities—not just for a few, not even for
most, but for everyone. In 1990 UNDP published the first Human Development Report (HDR). Since then, it has produced
more than 800 global, regional, national and subnational HDRs and organized hundreds of workshops, conferences and
other outreach initiatives to foster human development. These activities have extended the frontiers of analytical thinking
about human progress beyond economic growth, firmly placing people and human well-being at the centre of development
policies and strategies.
