dc.descriptionThis Index builds on previous EPIs, innovating in key areas including, for the first time, human health metrics that capture health risks across all ages and genders instead of using child mortality as a proxy. The 2016 EPI introduces novel measures of agricultural sustainability that form a foundation for a comprehensive suite of agriculture indicators to be developed. This EPI also includes new species protection indicators that speak to key conservation outcomes, shining a light on badly needed measures of biodiversity loss.
