Making a case of why the 2010 Environmental Performance Index is a bad ranking for Sierra Leone

By STANDARD TIMESPRESS

the 2010 rankings for Sierra Leone (163/163) were of themselves a bad light (and reputation for the country). It painted a picture of the amount of work that needed to be done (relative to other countries) and more importantly, by virtue of the EPI’s methodological approach, the imperative need for domestic policy improvements on the environment (as essentially the EPI is nothing more than a method of quantifying and numerically marking the environmental performance of a country’s policies)

Even with the 2010 EPI report, the right information and rating was not properly cited.
