Global development matters

The Center for Global Development – the publisher of the Commitment to Development Index (CDI), which ranks 21 richest countries on their policies' effect on poor countries - launched Global Development Matters.

The new site, designed with the U.S. audience primarily in mind, has five new short videos on the topics ranging from health issues to global trade and subsidies. Microfinance video below:

See also their new GDB Blog. It tracks each of the U.S. 2008 presidential candidates and their stance on global development issues.

Thanks for mentioning our site! The short clips on Global Development Matters are repurposed from the European documentary series, "A Dollar A Day." Coming soon, the Center for Global Development will be releasing dvds of the full films--so if you are interested in digging deeper into the stories they will be available shortly.

Thanks!
