Strategic Management for Increasing the Human Development Index in North Kalimantan


The Human Development Index (HDI) is a value that reflects the level of poverty, literacy, education, life expectancy, and other factors in each region. The management strategy for increasing the Human Development Index (HDI) in North Kalimantan Province follows the concept proposed by Stahl and Grigsby (1992). Among the three aspects effectively implemented in the province of North Kalimantan, this can be seen from the formulation strategy dimension, which includes a long-term strategy as an integral part of short-term and medium-term strategies. The second dimension is the implementation strategy, which indicates that the North Kalimantan Province’s economic growth in the 3rd quarter of 2022 reached 5.39%. The third dimension involves evaluation and control, which focuses on simulating the Human Development Index targets for North Kalimantan Province in 2023-2026 by observing and realizing the growth of the Human Development Index (IPM). The goal is to achieve a growth rate of 39% and become a driving force in efforts to increase economic growth in the next quarter.
