Theoretical Frame
Puerto Rico needs to embrace a paradigmatic shift to drive new form and root out thatobsoletes ways that had define our design of social sustenance. This initiative looks toinfluence strongly the policy-making process of Puerto Rico for an adoption of a longterm comprehensive plan to revitalize, restart and reform the design of our living andshared spaces. It has become vital to our progress as a country the education ofprofessionals in Sustainable Developments to meet the challenges that this centurybrings. Through the implementation of a comprehensive Sustainable Development Planto Puerto Rico, is the search to place as a main purpose the citizenship and enlarge therange ofchoicesthat the people have to fulfill in their daily life reducing the inequalitygap that has produce social impoverishment and less opportunity for people toprogress.Partnership initiatives provideshared solutions to face theecologic, economic and socialproblematic of our
country. It’s
 
urgent to provoke an organically shift in our wrong-head economical developmentbased in the economical Gross National Product (GNP) growth focus in the financialprosperity. We need to canalize a coordinated partnership between agencies,communities, communitarian and political leaders and extend the bound to the privatesector by unifying in partnership and contributing in the raise of a renewed pacificationpolicy for Puerto Rico.
 
Human Development as core principle
 
 Human development as an approach, deals with what I consider thebasic development idea: namely, increasing the richness of human liferather than the wealth of the economy in which human beings live, whichis only a part of life itself.-Amartya Sen, Nobel Prize for economics in 1998.
Human development is a process of enlarging people's choices.Many fast-growingdeveloping countries are discovering that their high GNP growth rates have failed toreduce the socioeconomic deprivation of substantial sections of their population(UNDP, 1990). To replace the misguided approach we propose give more emphasis to
the Human Development Index (HDI). Explained in the same words of the index’s
creator, the Pakistani economistMahbub ul Haq,the HDI had the purpose
"to shift the
 
 focus of development economics from national income accounting to people centered policies".
 The HDI considers three aspects: life expectancy at birth,Education index,that meanyears of schooling and Expected years of schooling, and the Gross National Income(GNI per Capita) = (Producto interno bruto) that means a decent standard of living.
