Now the big surprise for me that among the top clean green in the world we have Costa Rica !! Anyhow this is not our issue here , our issue here is Egypt and its location from environment ; is it a friendly country to environment or hostile one !!? Of course all indicators support the second choice. well actually it turned out that we are not so bad but not so good. Our Egypt's ranking is no.68 for a score of 62 in 2010, it is better than our previous score in 2008 where our ranking was no.71 for a score of 76.3.
Here is our score in different categories "the highest score is 100 and the lowest score is 0"
