The Most Cleanest And Dirtiest Countries in The World : Where are we !!?

The Environmental performance Index " EPI" ranks 163 countries on 25 performance indicators tracked across ten policy categories covering both environmental public health and ecosystem vitality according to its official website. In other brief words this index shows the most green cleanest countries in the world and also the most grey dirtiest countries. It follows Yale University by the way and if you read it thoroughly , you will find very important and very dangerous
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"

  2. Dear Zenobia,

    I dont understand, you say the highest score is 100, BUT:

    "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. "

    I dont see it is better, since we got 62 which is less than 76.3. It seems that other countries are worse than last year, no more.

    Moreover we got 100 for "forestry" (which is strange since we dont have any forest) and we are ranked 50!!

    I am sorry, but I have to ask: am I missing something, or maybe I dont understand the statistics

  3. @Bata, believe me I share with you the same feeling , it is very sad thing

    @Dear Sakrquraysh , it is vice versa , 100 is the highest you will find Iceland and costra Rica have 100 as a score
    I do not get the forestry thing still you will find similiar countries from the region share with us this score
