The central focus of the UNDP 1994 Human Development Report on sustainable human development makes its review essential due to the current global concern on sustainable economic development. The 1994 UNDP Human Development Report is divided into five major chapters. Chapter one defines the universalism of life claims and emphasizes the need for strategic planning towards sustainable human development. Chapter two highlights four essential characteristics of the new dimensions of human security, names two main components of human security and identifies eight threats to human security. Chapter three discusses disarmament in industrial and developing countries and the future of world disarmament. Chapter four proposes a new design for development co-operation including proposed institutions for the 21st century. Finally, chapter five revisits the human development index which was brought into lime light in 1990.
