This year's Human Development Index, published by the United Nations Development Programme, shows that 11 African countries improved their rankings in 2013 over 2012, while the rankings of eight declined. Still, Africa lags far behind the rest of the world - 35 of the 43 countries whose development is categorised as "low" are African.
