[Wade H Andrews; Universities Council on Water Resources.; United States. Office of Water Resources Research.; Utah State University. Quality of life is an important concept in the field of international development since it allows development to be analyzed on a measure broader than standard of living.

Within development theory, however, there are varying ideas concerning what constitutes desirable change for a particular society, and the different ways that quality of life is defined by institutions therefore shapes how.
