This AP article picked up by the Manila Times features highlights from CGD's 2005 Commitment to Development Index.

The index, published by the Center for Global Development advocacy group, ranks the countries "based on their dedication to policies that benefit the five billion people living in poorer nations worldwide," the cen­ter's website says. It grades countries on the basis of government policies, rewarding those judged to improve prospects of poor countries and punishing those that do not.
