The Commitment to Development Index 2006 by the CGD



For this week I could not stand on the side, as not to feature the Commitment to Development Index 2006 by the CGD. For those of you out there, who don’t already know, this tool lays out set of indicators to evaluate policy measures influencing the relationships between rich and poor countries.

“Rich and poor countries are linked by aid, commerce, migration, the environment, and more. The 2006 Commitment to Development Index (CDI) ranks 21 rich countries on how well they help poor countries. Each rich country gets scores in seven policy areas, which are averaged for an overall score. This year, Netherlands comes out on top.”

*And by digging a bit more on the CGD site I found this interesting paper on Social Cohesion, Institution and Growth by the renowned William Easterly.
