The report addresses the issue of connection between economic growth and people’s lives.

Lahore: The Human Development in South Asia-2015 is a thirty year review of economic and social progress in South Asia from 1980 to 2010.

The study presents a detailed analysis of socio-economic development in five countries: India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

The Report analyses the achievement of economic growth in South Asia in relation to its impact on the lives and well-being of people and reports that economic growth in South Asia has bypassed the people. Growth has happened but not people’s empowerment.

The Report examines economic policies, policies for employment, food security, education, health and women’s empowerment. It concludes that the growth policies must be complemented by policies that advance not only economic growth but also provide education and health to all people, create employment, empower women and reduce poverty.
