Question 6.

Answer the following questions in not more than 150 words.

What do you understand by the term human development?


Answer:

The term human development points to the fact that meaningful development cannot take place unless conditions for human existence improves. Access to health, education and resources comprises the basic human necessity. Dr Mabub-ul-Haq, who introduced this concept, has described human development as development that enlarges people’s choice and improves their lives.


Human choice is the keyword. People often fail to realise their capability and freedom to make even basic choices, due to their inability to acquire knowledge, their material poverty, social discrimination, the inefficiency of institutions, etc. This prevents them from leading healthy lives, being able to get educated, or to have the means to a decent life. Building people’s capabilities in the areas of health, education and access to resources are therefore, important in enlarging their choices.


Thus, human development is necessary to enable people to see their true choices and potential, and lead a life to their fullest ability.



Question 7.

Answer the following questions in not more than 150 words.

What do equity and sustainability refer to within the concept of human development?


Answer:

Equity and sustainability are the two main components of human development. Equity refers to making equal access to opportunities available to everybody; irrespective of their gender, race, income, caste, or anything. The basic idea is to ensure equitable distribution of opportunity to every individual, so they can exercise their choice without any hindrance. Each must get an equal share of the developmental pie, and human development cannot be said to have happened if only one set of individuals get all the opportunities.

Sustainability means continuity in the availability of opportunities, which is based on the premise that to have sustainable human development, each generation must have the same opportunities. The idea is to ensure sustainable use of all environmental, financial and human resources while considering the future requirements. Misuse of any of these resources will lead to fewer opportunities for future generations. Hence, each generation must have the same starting point.
