Abstract: The Commitment to Development Index (CDI) ranks 22 of the world’s richest countries on their dedication to policies that benefit the five billion people living in poorer nations. Moving beyond standard comparisons of foreign aid volumes, the CDI quantifies a range of rich country policies that affect poor people in developing countries like quantity and quality of foreign aid, openness to developing-country exports, policies that encourage investment, migration policies, environmental policies, security policies, support for creation and dissemination of new technologies.
