Scandinavian countries top the Commitment to Development Index

Scandinavian countries are the most committed national development actors, according to this year’s Commitment to Development Index, which measures not just aid levels, but also how well other policies foster sustainable development. Germany ranked third, making it the first time a G-7 country is placed in the top three in CDI’s 15-year history. The United States, at 23rd, remains stagnant. The ranking of 27 of the world’s richest countries, released Tuesday, places Sweden first and Denmark second, thanks to high scores on the environment and migration, and trade and security, respectively. Germany rises two spots from last year to enter the top three, equal with Finland, thanks to a strong migration and trade agenda. At the other end of the scale, Poland is in 25th position, followed by Greece and South Korea. Sofia Svarfvar from CONCORD Sweden, an NGO platform, said the findings were consistent with her organization’s analysis, and praised the consensus among the Swedish government and parliament on the need for strong policy coherence for development.
