Bad news about development often crowds out the good. Yet despite global challenges, we live in an age when more progress has been made than at any other time in history. ODI’s Development Progress project aims to measure, understand and communicate where and how this progress has been made. The project brings together case studies, opinion and in-depth research, with a range of supporting content including infographics, animation and photography.
