Seychelles ranked top in Africa on Yale's Environmental Performance Index

Seychelles is ranked first in Africa on the Environmental Performance Index 2020, scoring high marks in the protection of biodiversity. The archipelago in the western Indian Ocean is ranked 38th out of 180 countries globally, performing above the regional and world average in almost all indicators. The principal secretary for environment, Alain Decommarmond, told a press conference on Thursday that «this result shows that the world is recognising the important role we are playing in protecting our biodiversity.» In the biodiversity category, Seychelles performed extremely well, scoring 100 out of 100 for the work done in protecting its marine and terrestrial areas. The island nation has legally designated 30 percent of its territorial waters as marine protected areas 10 years ahead of international targets. The protected area is now 410,000 square kilometres of the Seychelles' Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of 1.4 million square kilometres. The Environmental Performance Index 2020, which came out in June, ranks countries in 11 different categories on a scale of 100. These categories include air pollution, sanitation, biodiversity, climate and energy, fisheries, agriculture, and wastewater treatment to name a few. The index is put out by the Yale Center for Environmental Law & Policy in the United States. Decommarmond said that the Department of Environment is satisfied with its global ranking but that improvements need to be made in the area of waste management. This is an area where Seychelles has performed poorly, ranking 133th out of 180 countries. «I am not surprised with this ranking. Waste management is a huge challenge for the country. The result is reflecting the reality and it shows that there is more work to be done in that field. We have plans that will be put in place to improve the score,» he said. The principal secretary added that the «responsibility of managing waste is not only for the government, but everybody should play their role in keeping our environment clean using proper disposal mechanism put in place for waste.» Top on the global scale is Denmark followed by Luxembourg, and Switzerland. Other European countries round out the top 10. Japan is 12th and the United States is 24th.  At the bottom of the list is a West African country – Liberia. When explaining the performance, the EPI team said that a number of striking conclusions emerge from the 2020 EPI rankings and that primarily good policy results are associated with wealth (GDP per capita), meaning that economic prosperity makes it possible for nations to invest in policies and programmes that lead to desirable outcomes.

박원순 시장 실종에 정치권 충격 “소명의식 강한 분…믿기지 않아”

박원순 서울시장 잠적 소식에 정치권도 놀란 표정을 감추지 못했다. 9일에도 부동산 공급 대책 문제로 여당인 더불어민주당 지도부와 면담 일정을 잡는 등 박 시장이 평소와 다름없는 행보를 보였던 만큼 더욱 충격에 빠진 모습이다. 민주당 핵심 관계자는 “당에서도 박 시장의 ‘이상징후’를 전혀 예상하지 못했다”며 “박 시장과 평소 친분이 있는 의원들도 제대로 된 상황을 파악하지 못한 상황”이라고 했다. 특히 박 시장은 부동산 공급 대책 문제를 두고 9일 저녁 김태년 원내대표와 약속을 잡아둔 것으로 알려졌다. 민주당과 서울시는 그린벨트 해제 등 부동산 공급 확대 방안을 두고 물밑 대화를 진행해왔다. 여권 관계자는 “8일 민선 5, 6기 지방자치단체장들 만찬 자리에서도 시종일관 유쾌한 분위기였다”고 전했다. 4월 총선에서 대거 당선된 ‘박원순계(係)’ 민주당 의원들 역시 충격에 빠진 모습이다. 21대 총선에서 당선된 박원순계 의원은 10여 명에 이른다. 재선인 기동민 의원(서울 성북을)

박원순 서울시장이 실종됐다는 소식이 알려진 9일 오후 시청 직원들은 ‘당황스럽다’는 반응이 역력했다. TV를 통해 박 시장의 실종 속보가 이어지자 직원들의 입에서는 탄식이 흘러나왔다. 퇴근하는 발길을 멈추고 TV 앞에 한참을 서 있는 직원들도 있었다. 서울시는 4급 이상 직원들에게 별도의 지시가 있을 때까지 사무실에 대기할 것을 지시했다. 박 시장의 실종 소식이 전해진 오후 6시경부터 시장실과 행정부시장실, 정무부시장실, 정무수석실이 있는 6층에는 방호과 직원들이 직원은 물론 기자들의 접근을 막았다. 오후 7시부터 주요 간부들이 행정부시장실에 모여 긴급 회의를 열었다. 직원들이 복도를 바쁘게 오갔고 6층으로 이어지는 엘리베이터는 모두 통제했다. 현장을 취재하는 기자들에게도 “내려가라”고 강한 어조로 요청하기도 했다. 청사 내부로 통하는 1층 후문에서도 신분증을 확인하는 등 외부인 출입을 철저하게 막았다. 박 시장은 이날 두 건의 공식 일정이 잡혀있었다. 오전에는 비공개 일정이
