This year’s Global Green Economy Index (GGEI 2016) ranks Ethiopia as one of the top 15 countries in overall climate change performance. The report says Ethiopia’s performance results have shown a significant progress since 2014. It further points out that Ethiopia’s performance is “a step up driven mostly by maintaining a top position on the Leadership and Climate Change dimension while simultaneously improving its result on the Environment dimension considerably.”
The report noted that Sweden topped this year’s GGEI in the area of climate change performance followed by the other “Nordics” and then Switzerland, Germany, and Austria. The Global Green Economy Index is a data-driven evaluation of how 80 countries and 50 cities perform in the global green economy, as well as how experts evaluate that performance.
The Global Green Economy Index offers an integrated view of national green performances, measuring emissions, the environment, investment, green innovation and efficiency sectors like buildings, transport and energy through one unified framework.
