The Sikkim Human Development Report of 2001 highlights the state’s achievements and the road ahead to realize potential developmental growth. Sikkim’s wealth in the form of natural resources and the environment play a very crucial role in realizing this impending growth. With successes such as rise in literacy rates from 7 to 70% in 50 years or 83% children attending school, this Report also throws light on the constraints that slow down the growth process, such as lack of infrastructure for industries and healthcare or the absence of adequate man power and utilization of obsolete technology for agricultural purposes. Finally this Report acknowledges governance for sustainable human development with rise in strengthening of community participation to guarantee the success of the development projects.
