The 2007 Human Development Report for Madhya Pradesh views human development as both a means and an end for progress. The core of this Report emphasizes the need for improvements in economic infrastructure in order to foster inclusive development. Although Human Development is based on the notion that economic indicators are not the only measures of progress, economic infrastructure is necessary in order to facilitate progress in other areas such as health, education, sanitation, livelihoods etc. The Report looks at issues such as physical connectivity, energy, communications and financial infrastructure, and takes into consideration urbanization and migration. The role of economic and basic infrastructure in human development is undeniable, and the Report analyzes this role in existing human development success, and potential improvements.
