Due To Poor Handling Of Air Pollution, India Is In The Bottom 4 Of Global Environment Rankings!

Air Pollution hasn’t hurt only the health of the citizens, but also the nation’s standing in the world. A country that aspires to be a superpower, India’s poor handling of air pollution abatement and forest protection measures has seen it slip to 177th position in green rankings this year from its 141st position two years ago.

The latest global Environmental Performance Index (EPI) rankings released on Tuesday on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum meet in Davos, Switzerland, saw India figure in the bottom five performers in a list of 180 countries.

The EPI report ranks these nations on 10 broad categories (issues), including 24 performance indicators, covering environmental health and ecosystem vitality. These performance indicators include air quality, water & sanitation, CO2 emission intensity (emission per unit of GDP), forests (deforestation) and waste water treatment among others.
