This lecture will trace the evolution of thinking from an exclusive emphasis on economic growth to Human Development starting with the 1990 Human Development Report of the UNDP. It will trace the achievements in Human Development since then, differentiating between basic Human Development and broader dimensions. While there has been very major progress on many of the dimensions, particularly basic HD, there has been more mixed progress on other dimensions – for example in relation to community and social aspects, while there is ongoing gross failure with respect to sustainability. The lecture will end by pointing to some defects in the approach and the challenges they represent for future analysis and policy.
