The "2011 DATA Report" provides a final verdict on the commitments that were made by the G8 and EU to sub-Saharan Africa in 2005. Commitments which were due in 2010. As shown in the interactive version of the report [one.org], developed by Stamen Design, the key findings show that despite historic increases and remarkable results over the past decade, donors still fell short of meeting their promises.

One can check out the data through an bubble graph with interactive timeline, or various bubble world maps accompanied with ordered lists that reveal a country's assistance as a % of its gross national income, in straight financial amounts, or expressed as per capita.

More detailed information per country is also avaible, such as for the U.S. or Germany (though some sort of direct comparison would be nice).

Bubbles on a map is a poor choice for this data.
Area mapping is for data with a very wide range of values.
And using flags AND putting it on a map AND writing the name of the country is just too much redundancy.

I agree with graphic redundancy and I might add a way to inform the viewer of the per capita percentage of those commitments. Was Scandinavia extremely generous, or just soberly cheap?
