Afghanistan’s Human Development Reports.
Human development is about putting people at the center of development. It is about people realizing their potential, increasing their choices and enjoying the freedom to lead lives they value. Since 2004, Afghanistan has published two National Human Development Reports, the first called Security with a Human Face, and the second Bridging Modernity and Tradition in 2007.

Afghanistan Human Development Report 2004
Security With a Human Face
"This Report is about accountability to the Afghan people. It is a reminder, voiced by the hundreds involved, that the responsibility of the government and the international community in Afghanistan is to provide human security public goods for all Afghans, regardless of gender, ethnicity or geographic location. But it also calls on people themselves to become actively involved in the process of creating those goods. A first step was to be involved directly in identifying common desired goals and threats to these. This Report and its process are ultimately an expression of hope for a life of dignity."
Human Development Report
Featuring the Human Development Index, every report presents agenda-setting data and analysis and calls international attentions to issues and policy options that put people at the center of strategies to meet the challenges of development today - economic, social, political, and cultural.
