Guyana gets poor ranking on Environment Index

minningGuyana has ranked 137 on the Global Environmental Performance Index (EPI) which ranks how well countries perform on high-priority environmental issues in two broad policy areas, namely the protection of human health from environmental harm and protection of ecosystems.  178 countries were considered in the “global scorecard’ which provides first-time insight as to collective policy impacts on the major environmental issues of our time. The index

is a joint project between the Yale Center for Environmental Law & Policy and the Center for International Earth Science Information Network at Columbia University, in collaboration with the World Economic Forum. Guyana’s poor rating comes despite global stardom for President Bharrat Jagdeo and his

Low Carbon Development Strategy, which formed the basis of a forest-saving deal with Norway. Five years into that deal, and Guyana has received but a pinch of the deal worth US$250 million
