Costa Rica In Top 20 Of Nations That Protect The Environment

Costa Rica managed to sneak in among the 20 nations of the world that most protect the environment and promote social development, according to the first edition of the Laudato Si Environmental and Social Development Index.

The ranking analyzed 127 countries and in the case of Costa Rica distinguished it as the only emerging economy and as the only Latin American nation to position itself in the prestigious top 20.

This also places the country the best nation positioned in Central America and second in the continent, surpassed only by Canada.

The measurement was made by the Universidad Católica in partnership with Viva Trus, Incae Business School and Progress Social Imperative.

Aspects such as access to health and services, air quality, water, and discrimination policies were taken into account; that is, not only actions to protect the planet, but also for human and social development.

This is included in a note on humanistic integral ecology, which in the case of Costa Rica was 77.35.

This ecology is composed of two dimensions: the common good (where aspects of basic needs and opportunities are seen) and the care of the common home (composed of the performance and environmental balance of each country).
