Examples of Current Events
Country removed or eased restrictions and regulations on pollution or greenhouse gas emissions. Country initiated
or allowed new exploitation of protected lands. Illegal dumping or other illegal pollution by government or major
corporations exposed.
Major pollution disaster such as an oil or chemical spill occurred. People displaced due to environmental
degradation or hazards. Pollution, resource consumption, or waste is notably increased in relation to other countries.

Reporting guidelines:
• Use the current report prototype for language
reference
• For each Implementation Indicator, please try
cover all the sub-indicators covered (if
available)
• For Implementation sub-indicators remember
to cite the source (i.e. … emits an average of
