According to the MDG Report Card, the top 20 countries that have made the most overall progress on the MDGs are: Benin, Mali, Ethiopia, Gambia, Malawi, Vietnam, Uganda, Nepal, India, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Honduras, Mauritania, Ghana, China, Burkina Faso, Rwanda, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Togo.
Rwanda, man! Unless we had a systematic culling of our population based on ethnicity last night, I don’t think we have any excuse.
