Applying environmental performance indices towards an objective measure of sustainability in the Levant
AbstractAn 'Environmental Diamond' for the Levant is proposed, similar to the World Bank's 'Development Diamond'. It would serve as a framework for evaluating ecosystem risk for the countries in the Jordan Basin that are currently facing a sustainability crisis. The approach followed by this paper was based on previous work carried out in East Asia. The result is an integrative index that reveals a general picture without concealing specific aspects of environmental quality.
