Differentiate between the human development and world development report.
The Human Development Report (HDR) is an annual report published by the Human Development Report Office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). As of 2013, we saw an improvement in human development indicators (HDI) values globally. This notion of development implies leading a good quality of life where individuals develop themselves to its complete potential. It includes providing good education, health facilities. It takes literacy rate, infant mortality rate etc. as the indicators of the development of a country.
The World Development Report (WDR) is an annual report published since 1978 by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) or World Bank. It focuses factors like rise in per capita income and growth in the economy while comparing countries. It takes GDP, per capita income into account to determine the development level of the country.
