England's environment 'in decline' | in plain sight | Scoop.it
Cambium's insight:

England's natural environment is in decline and its deterioration is harming the economy, an independent advisory group has told the Government.  The Natural Capital Committee says pressures will rise with population growth and has called for a 25-year investment plan.

What is a Climate and Energy Indicator? | Infographic

What is a Climate and Energy Indicator? | Infographic | in plain sight | Scoop.it

This infographic is from the 2014 Environmental Performance Index. The Environmental Performance Index (EPI) ranks how well countries perform on high-priority environmental issues in two broad policy areas: protection of human health from environmental harm and protection of ecosystems. Within these two policy objectives the EPI scores country performance in nine issue areas comprised of 20 indicators. Indicators in the EPI measure how close countries are to meeting internationally established targets or, in the absence of agreed-upon targets, how they compare to the range of observed countries.
