[NEWS] India at the Bottom of 2018 Global Environmental Performance Index (EPI) Rankings

印度 – 無法改善其空氣質量,保護其生物多樣性並減少溫室氣體排放,所有可用的數據 – 今天都站在全球環境績效指數(EPI)排名的最後。 2016年,該國在180個國家中排名第141位。 根據2018年剛剛發布的印度環境(SoE)數據,它已經滑落到第177位。

圖中的SoE是由“科學與環境”(CSE)幫助發布的“Down to Earth”雜誌彙編的年度環境統計彙編。 CSE總幹事Sunita Narain說:“印度2018年環境狀況數據是對環境與發展問題和關注的量化表述 – 對我們影響深遠的問題和關切。 雖然我們印刷的其他年度印度環境狀況是一個描述性報告,但這是一個完全數據驅動的版本,可以輕鬆訪問和使用。“

Unable to improve its air quality, protect its biodiversity, and cut its greenhouse gas emissions, India – say all available data — stands today at the bottom of the Global Environment Performance Index (EPI) rankings. In 2016, the country had ranked 141 out of 180 countries. In 2018, according to the just released State of India’s Environment (SoE) 2018 in Figures, it has slipped to the 177th position.

The SoE in Figures is an annual compendium of environmental statistics put together by Down To Earth magazine, which Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) helps publish. Said Sunita Narain, director general, CSE: “The State of India’s Environment 2018 in Figures is a quantified statement on issues and concerns of environment and development – issues and concerns which affect us deeply. While our other annual State of India’s Environment in print is a descriptive report, this one is a completely data-driven version for easy access and use.”
