Comment(s):
A 19 point scale was developed to assess a government's
commitment to the environment.
A low level of commitment was
considered to be 0 7, a medium level of commitment 7.5 14, and a high
level 14.5 19.
The information was compiled and averaged for USAID 
assisted countries in four regions.
The scale was based on whether a
country had prepared any of four types of national environmental
management strategies or whether it had participated in any of five
major international environmental treaties.
This scale does not
indicate the degree to which an environmental strategy has been carried
out or an international treaty was followed.
Averaging this scale
across regions serves only to give a general idea of political
commitment to environmental issues.
The strategies and treaties
include:
 National Environmental Action Plans
 National Conservation Strategies
 Country Environmental Profiles
 Biological Diversity Profiles
 Frequency of reporting on trade in endangered species
 Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES)
 Framework Convention on Climate Change
 Vienna Convention on the Protection of the Ozone Layer
 Montreal Protocol for CFC Control
 Law of the Sea
* Data are current through 1997 as per World Development Indicators
(Table 3.9) and other sources.
** For the sake of demonstrating a trend, a one percent per year
increase (two percent over two years) is given for 1999.
