The problem of designing and application of integrated indicator describing ecological factors of human development is researched in the article. Human development index (HDI) designed by UNDP focuses on socio-economic issues of human development but neglects ecological issues that are included in the index only indirectly by life expectancy index. We propose a method to include assessment of ecological well-being into HDI. New environmentally corrected human development index (HDIe) if used in long-term socio-economic development strategies allows: firstly, to match declared development goals and performance indicators; secondly, to bring into assessment environmental factors of human development. The indicator also supports comparison of different regions development success.
