The top 16 countries in the 2018 CDI

Commitment to Development Index

CGD's annual Commitment to Development Index ranks 27 of the world’s richest countries on their dedication to policies that benefit people living in poorer countries. We measure hundreds of indicators across seven policy areas: aid, climate, finance, migration, security, technology, and trade. Our rankings not only help citizens understand how their country’s policies help or harm developing nations; the CDI is also used by governments to learn how to do better.
