Commitment to Development Index 2013

Center For Global Development en Política / Especiales

The Commitment to Development Index ranks 27 ofthe world's richest countries on policies that affectthe more than five billion people living in poorernations. The CDI goes beyond measures of foreignaid to quantify performance in seven areas:

  • Quantity and quality of foreign aid
  • Openness to exports
  • Policies that encourage investment and financial transparency
  • Openness to migration
  • Environmental policies
  • Promotion of international security
  • Support for technology creation and transfer

Why does the CDI matter? Because in an integrated world, the behavior of rich countries and powerful institutions can profoundly affect the lives of people in poor countries and because poverty and weak institutions in developing countries can breed public health crises, security threats, and economic crises that know no borders. Committing to policies that promote development and well-being is a global imperative: no human being should be denied the chance to live free of poverty and oppression and to enjoy a basic standard of education and health. The CDI countries all promote respect for human life and dignity; the Index looks at whether the policies of rich countries match these aspirations.
