Abstract

The present study is a modest attempt to highlight some of the important human development goals for Gujarat with reference to vision 2020. Three basic human development goals have been chosen for analysis. They are reduction of poverty, attainment of 100 hundred percent literacy and universal elementary education and improvement of basic health and demographic indicators. The study points out that while in most of the cases, Gujarat is on track to achieve its target in 2020. The study also substantiates a nexus between poverty, education and health. Finally there are areas of grave concern such as dipping sex ratio and massive drop out rates in elementary education. In the run to our dream of a prosperous, educated and healthy Gujarat, these issues are to be addressed impromptu.

Keywords: human development, population, poverty, unemployment, employment, literacy, health, demographic indicators
