Un indicateur de développement humain soutenable pour les petits espaces insulaires en développement


  • Sabine Garabedian
  • Jean-François Hoarau


This article aims at building a new composite index measuring sustainable development for small island economies. The Human Development Index is adapted to the reality of insularity by taking into account different aspects among which economic vulnerability and environmental sustainability. Then, this allows us to calculate a Sustainable Human Development Index for a large set of developing countries including many small islands. Finally, integrating sustainability in the assessment of human development shows that small island developing countries need to be considered as a special case.
