Dr. Jyothi B Panth
The purpose of this paper is to observe the factors responsible for growing popularity of Human development – is about expanding the richness of human life, by enhancing human rights, freedoms, capabilities and opportunities and by enabling people to lead long, healthy and creative lives, rather than simply the richness of the economy in which human beings live. The human development concept is complemented with a measure- the Human Development Index (HDI) which is a composite statistic of life expectancy, education, and income per capita indicators. This Human Development Index varies from country to country. This Human development is underminedby multiple shocks, vulnerabilities and risks by poverty, epidemics, by emerging health risks, by economic and financial crises and by environmental disasters. Some of these are discussed below with the instrumental role of education in eradicating and contributing for the human development.
