The concept of Human Development was introduced by Dr. Mahbub Ul Haq. Dr. Mahbub Ul Haq was a Pakistani economist. He described human development as development that improves the lives of people and that which increases the choices available to the people. The choices will keep on changing and it is never fixed.
The main goal is to create conditions where people can have meaningful lives. Meaningful life means the life should have a purpose and not just have a long life. It means people should be able to achieve their goals, be able to participate in society, be able to develop talents, and people should be able to lead a very healthy life.
