Human development measurement: what evolutions? State of the discussions regarding methodology and concept


On the occasion of the 20th anniversary Human Development Report, in 2010, a revised Human Development Index (HDI) was introduced alongside three experimental indices1. The revised methodology was introduced inresponse to some criticism and followed extensive consultations. The 2010 report looked at “Pathways to Human Development”, and was followed, in 2011, by the Report “Equity and sustainability”, focusing in particular on thetension between long term environment protection and equity.
