Denmark Still Top When it Comes to Supporting Global Development (The Copenhagen Post)
September 6, 2017
From the article:
While many wealthy countries could do better at helping share global prosperity with developing nations, Denmark has once again been ranked the world leader at supporting international development.
Denmark topped the 2017 Commitment to Development Index – which scores 27 countries according to their contributions to aid, trade, finance, migration, environment, security, and technology transfer in the developing world.
“It pleases me that Denmark’s development work has been ranked so well. Our leading position proves that we work hard for a freer, more wealthy and safe world,” said the development minister, Ulla Tørnæs.
Published annually by the Center for Global Development (CGD), the report (here in English) ranked Denmark top in the categories of Aid and Security and gave the Danes an overall score of 5.71, well ahead of second placed Sweden.
