The Inclusive Development Index (IDI) is based on 12 performance indicators.
In order to provide a more complete measure of economic development than GDP growth alone, the index has three pillars — growth and development, inclusion and intergenerational equity, and sustainability.
Lithuania tops the list of 79 developing economies that also features Azerbaijan and Hungary at second and third positions, respectively.
In South Asia, Nepal ranks ahead of Bangladesh at 27. Two BRIC nations, Russia and Brazil, are at 13th and 30th places, respectively.
