>From CIESIN: Announced at the World Economic Forum <http://www.weforum.org/> in
Davos, Switzerland, the 2012 Environmental Performance Index (EPI) produced
by CIESIN and Yale University’s Center for Environmental Law and Policy (
YCELP <http://envirocenter.research.yale.edu/>), in collaboration with the
World Economic Forum and the Joint Research Center in Ispra, Italy,
identifies Switzerland as first in addressing pollution control and natural
resource management challenges. Iraq is ranked last. The EPI has been
produced every two years since 2006. The 2012 EPI ranks 132 countries,
using 22 indicators in ten major policy categories including air and water
pollution, climate change, boidiversity, and forest management. Data sets
making up the EPI were contributed from the International Energy Agency,
remote sensing research groups at Battelle and University of Maryland, the
UN Food and Agriculture Organization, and other entities. To learn more,
