Guyana ranks 6th out 180 countries when it comes to ‘Air Quality’ – latest EPI study by Yale university


The 2016 Environmental Performance Index (EPI), a Yale-based initiative that evaluates how 180 countries around the world protect ecosystems and human health, has ranked Guyana as 6th when it comes to ‘Air Quality’.

Sun and cloudsAccording to the EPI report, which finds cause for both optimism and serious concern, the world’s nations have expanded access to water and sanitation while creating more protected areas than ever before, yet countries have failed to reverse degradation of air quality.

The EPI, which measures national and global protection of ecosystems and human health from environmental harm, draws out trends and highlights data gaps in priority areas including air quality, water management, and climate change.

Seychelles, Trinidad and Tobago, Maldives, Iceland and Australia are the countries ranked ahead of Guyana, with the United States ranked at 43 and the India (178), China (179) and Bandladesh (180) at the bottom of the list.
