From Netherlands to Japan
by Beth Rowen
The Commitment to Development Index (CDI) rated 21 rich countries on how much they help poor countries build prosperity, good government, and security. Each wealthy country was scored in seven policy areas: aid, trade, investment, migration, environment, security, and technology. The ratings were averaged to produce an overall score, with 10 as the highest.
