Environmental Performance Index published by Yale and Columbia universities has shown that the UAE has been listed as the top Middle Eastern nation.

Globally, the UAE is in joint 39th place out of 180 nations, with Denmark topping the list and India coming last

The index ranks countries on performance indicators that consider the health of their environment, how they enhance or damage ecosystems, and their efforts to combat climate change.

“High-scoring countries exhibit long-standing and continuing investments in policies that protect environmental health, preserve biodiversity and habitat, conserve natural resources, and decouple greenhouse gas emissions from economic growth,” the index report states.
