Fair development is a human development concept based on the enlightened needs of many individuals. It is similar to the concept of sustainable development, however there are a few key differences. Fair development is currently one of the most suitable human development principles. Taking fairness as the core development element, this theory is people-centric and encourages different groups and countries to adopt the internal and external definition of fairness appropriate for themselves, on which they can establish specific development plans. If the development is fair, it will also be sustainable.
Fair development is defined as human development that strives to ensure distributive, procedural, and restorative fairness related to opportunities, resources, and outputs, for any entity X that either exists now or will exist Y years from now.
