Description

ODI’s Mapping Progress report finds four key drivers of progress in development. It systematically analyses development progress in 24 countries across the global south and ranks countries according to performance.

Countries often better known as hubs of war and famine have made remarkable progress across different sectors including growth, education, healthcare, governance and agriculture. The report identifies the crucial role of effective leadership, smart policies, proper institutional foundations and international partnership in driving development progress. Countries are split into four categories: stars, surprises, potential performers and conundrums where progress in some areas has not delivered expected improvements in the lives of the poor.

This event is being held in Brussels and attendance is limited so please reserve your place as soon as possible.
