The World Justice Project and the Inter-American Development Bank published “Environmental Governance Indicators for Latin America and the Caribbean” (EGI), a quantitative report that measures countries’ compliance with environmental regulations and assesses the capacity of relevant institutions. Using eleven key indicators of environmental governance, the report analyzes survey data from Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rice, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Jamaica, Peru, and Uruguay. The EGI is the first resource to address challenges to implement environmental laws in Latin America and seeks to strengthen rule of law concepts such as regulatory enforcement, transparency in environmental policy, and the institutional capacity of environmental agencies.

The EGI is free and available online. Download it here: https://publications.iadb.org/en/environmental-governance-indicators-latin-america-caribbean-cross-country-assessment-environmental.
