Development Summary

Development has its origins in the late 1940s- in a speech by President Truman in which he employed the term underdeveloped areas to describe poor areas that we now know as Economically Less Developed Countries(ELDCs). Poor areas in such countries are seen as traditonal. Development tend to take on the idea of modernization, which is perceived to be at odds with many traditional societies in these poor areas.

Development since the 1960s is largely dominated by economical concerns and it was only in the late 1970s and even present day that social and spatial development has been incorporated into its practice.

Development in general thus addresses the need to bring about a betterment of socio-economic aspects of a nation, with care given to sustainable development with regards to managing its environment.
