What's the score   Centre for Poverty Analysis

On What’sthescore we take a different spin on cricket.

While cricket rankings and player statistics are vital part of the cricket commentary, we use statistics and stories to highlight the 14 cricketing nations' progress in human development and their performance in tackling poverty and inequality.

So in our version of the World Cup, countries climb up the rankings based on their performance on issues like distribution of income, gender equality, environmental sustainability, quality of education and health.

 

The Centre for Poverty Analysis (CEPA) is an independent think tank based in Colombo, providing a better understanding of poverty related issues in Sri Lanka. 

CEPA carries out empirical and policy research, provides advisory and training services to organizations and professionals working in development, and engages in research communications to people whose decisions affect the lives of the poor and the vulnerable.

DISCLAIMER
‘What's the score?' does not in any way represent CEPA's official view on the policies pursued by the cricket playing countries or the activities of the featured organizations. It should not be taken as an overall ranking of how 'good' or 'bad' countries are – we are supportive of those countries who are effectively eradicating poverty but, more importantly, question why other cricket playing countries have not been able to achieve the same goal. Our aim is to draw attention to serious issues, but using a light hearted approach to include the cricket loving public in this discussion.
