In the fifth edition of the Global Green Economy Index (GGEI) made public in September 2016, Ethiopia is ranked 14 globally in terms of climate change performance, between France (13) and Italy (15).
The country gained 12 ranks since 2014 when it was listed at the 26th position. Thanks to its good ranking in the current report, Ethiopia is described as one of the “top performers” among developing countries.
Moreover, Ethiopia is ranked number one worldwide in the category “Leadership in the area of climate change”.
In its analysis, the report points out that “Ethiopia is now near the top ten in terms of overall GGEI performance, an improvement driven mostly by maintaining a top position on the Leadership & Climate Change dimension while simultaneously improving its result on the Environment dimension considerably.”
The Global Green Economy Index is a data-driven analysis of how 80 countries perform in the global green economy, as well as how expert practitioners rank this performance.
